Default 91 240 green o ring on throttle body shaft

Greetings, I was wondering what you would call the green sealing ring around the throttle plate shaft, which is on the side of the throttle position sensor. While mine isn't completely broken, it's definitely loose. I've already replaced the other sealing ring on the 'spring' side which was fully disintegrated, but didn't come across this part. Can I use a suitable o-ring instead if I can't find the part?


Thanks for your knowledge in advance!

Try measuring the inside and outside diameter and get a fuel resistant oring of the same size. No part number for that oring that I know of.

I thought that the throttle shaft rings were the same as like injectors or valve hushers?

I could be wrong....
