I ended up just doing the repair. The local stealership was able to get the parts pretty quick - $7.75 for each rubber grommet. I skipped the sealant experiment for 2 reasons, first everything was...

Yeah - that's too high even if it's in great shape. I paid less than 6k for a 95 530 manual about a year ago, it had just over 100k.
