    Does anyone know what the size is of the bolt hole is above the inside wheel arch ? 10mm x 1.25mm pitch is what the size is of the bolts on the lashing points but is too loose and 12mm x 1.75mm pitch starts but gets too tight.
    Any ideas?

    Have been wondering the same but never before took action to even measure. I'm pretty sure it is M11 x 1.25. The same as in the picture which fits also to seat belt fixing point further up in C-pillar. Just measured the bolt in the picture :D so can now start scratching my head where to find another one.

    I can't remember what the size was now, but these guys know the exact size as they use this hole to attach their Kombi beds to

    I called into my local VW dealer spare parts department today to order these bolts.. after a bit of mucking about we eventually found the bolt in question. It turned out to be described as 7/16 × 36.5mil. So it's imperial !! Once home I dug into my bucket of old bolts and found a 7/16unf bolt and it fits. I'm in Oz and this size is standard to our baby seat restraint and some seat belts. I would have thought a metric equivalent but you learn something new every day aye..

    I think a lot of seat belt bolts are imperial, even on new vehicles.
