Does anyone know the thread size in the drivers side footwell for the bonnet release lever backplate? I removed it a few months ago when it snapped and I put the bolts in a safe place....turns out its a very safe place as I cant remember where :confused::lol:

I have tried an M6 which is approx the correct diameter but it isnt metric :rolleyes:

One would have thought it was M6 being European.

Is the bolt a bit tight in the thread - if so tap it out to M6?

1/4 inch is a bit bigger than M6 so it might just be a fine pitch.

I had the same problem a few weeks ago. The whole lever assembly had broken and when fitting a new one, guess what numpty had mislaid one of the bolts? Rummaged in my "spare bolts" box and found that a 1/4 unf bolt fitted. Couldn't use it at the end of the day though as it was too short, so I ended up graunching an M6 bolt in. Its still there :D
