Default 06 STI Fuel Filter inlet grommet question

Had to do a pump change at night on the bad side of town. While doing so the grommet on the top of the fuel filter split causing fuel pressure to drop and recirculate in the tank. So i disassembled again and was lucky that the fuel hose i had fit where the grommet was in the top of the filter and did hold pressure for the ride home. I had replaced the filter about 15,000 miles ago. And don't remember if the filter supplied the new grommet. During part supply searches i have noticed no grommets on intank F.Filters while looking at diagrams. What also gets me is while finding a stock Filter on Oakos it noted that the filters inlet grommet was Not included. And so it would be greatly appreciated if anyone that has recently installed a new filter and remembers if the grommet came with it or someone that had a F.F. grommet split on them before chyme in on the subject. Thanks in advance.
