    OCD kicking in

    Just noticed that the bolt that holds the dip stick in place is missing.

    I have checked the garage but can't find one that fits. Anyone know where I can get one or a part number?

    Thanks

    If you're getting a generic one try to get 8.8 grade stainless steel to stop it rotting

    Theres a fair chance it could also be a N90440702, which is a M6x15....so only 1mm difference.

    i cant imagine it making a blind bit of difference which one you get to be fair!

    If you have any trouble, i'll post one a suitable bolt from work FOC, as I'm sure we have one somewhere!

    Interesting find....
    Engine in my car was the exact same... Found a M6 x 12mm stainless bolt in the tool box which worked a treat.
