Hello,

last week when I was installing the cruise control unit I needed to take off the left-hand side strut plate and the strut brace and I noticed that I had one bolt missing in the brace bar.

Is it a regular metric screw or something different? I did not try to screw in any other bolt because I am worried I will tear the thread.

the picture is just a reference to what I mean (thanks google)

I have spare stainless bolts from when I swapped the strut bolts to stainless ones. I got one of the spares and measured the thread to see what size it was. :)
