Hi All,

I need to mount the 3 rear arm rests in my 73 bay window. They look this this:

https://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=2051107

Before I head to the store and buy a bunch of metric screws to test in the threaded holes, I'm wondering if anyone has documentation on the screw size, thread, and length.

Seems like it might be M6.

Thanks,

Mike

That would be 3 of items N141451: screw, filister head BM 6 x 30, i.e. M6x1.0 threaded screws 30 mm long. Not sure what finish
the BM represents. They also used M6 spring (wavy) washers.
