Foam filler left trunk well

A wine bottle broke rolling around in my trunk. Last night I removed the trim from the trunk and found a foam insert that sits in the left-hand well to provide support to the trim (under the jack). It's nasty, crumbly and now reeks of old wine. I've rinsed it but not sure if it will ever dry out completely. I find it odd that the left and right wells don't have any drainage. I can't find a replacement part number for the foam insert anywhere. Help?

Looking for one as well! I left mine out to dry and my gardeners toss it in the trash without me knowing! I went to look for it 2 weeks later....

It just holds moisture against the rust prone metal. Tossing it is best bet.

There are drain slits in both wells. Hard to see and usually gummed or rusted up but a small slotted screw driver should clear them. I believe there are 2/side
