Apache: Inspect for Missing Grommet in E-Model Extended Forward Avionics Bay

BLUF:  AMAM H-64-23-AMAM-05 requires inspection of the right-hand extended forward avionics bay (EFAB) skate angle for a missing grommet on select aircraft.
Aviation units with Version 6 E-models need to inspect their aircraft to see if they have the nonmetallic grommet, NSN 5325-00-960-2410, PN MS21266-1N, installed on the right-hand extended forward avionics bay (EFAB) skate angle. This action is required per aviation maintenance action message (AMAM) H-64-23-AMAM-05.  Follow the detailed guidance in the AMAM to include all NOTES. Also follow the detailed reporting and compliance instructions in Para 2.

NOTE: An update to the AMAM, issued on 11 Jan 2023, informs units that only a very few aircraft didn’t receive the correct grommet and that earlier E-model aircraft have a different clamping configuration.
Follow AMAM instructions if grommet is missing from (EFAB) skate angle
