This seal has no holes or rips. Tested and working before it was removed. This is a used OEM factory seal. It does not have a plastic backing but the original rubber one. Due to the necessities of storing and shipping the manufacturer suggests soaking the seal in warm water or laying it out in the sun before installing to help it regain its shape.
