Default Need help identifying bolt - '87 S4 Auto

Hi guys,

After removing the doors and shelfs on both sides we put the nuts and bolts in a few plastic cups to prevent them from getting lost.

I've been able to identify and bag all of them but one: I haven't got a clue where this bolt came from:



Does anyone have an idea or a suggestion?

Thanks!


Manfred

How did I miss that…..

I thought I had bagged both of them, probably should have taken a beer while working on the doors…..

Thank you so much Kevin...!!!

add a drop of blue thread locker to the threads so it stays tight.
The arm it goes through can unscrew it

This happens all the time in my S4. Definitely torque to spec with threadlocker. Otherwise it will get loose and rattle, or worse...

Thanks for the tip, I will definitely use that when I hang the doors back on the car!
