Seatbelt Bolt Size?


Recommended Posts

What is the size of the bolt that secures the seatbelt shoulder piece to the column in between the front and rear window for the front seats (PN 72111845045)? RealOEM does not list the size and I couldn't find a match at the hardware store. Thanks for the help.

The bolts that hold the seat belt to the inner rocker is the only SAE (not metric) bolt I know of the car.

I can not remember if the bolts on the B pillar are SAE or not. There was some discussion a long time ago about seat belt bolts being SAE.

I figured it was a special bolt when I couldn't find a match at the hardware store. I have a carbed 1972 (VIN 2582400). The reason I'm looking for the bolt size is because I purchased the bracket (PN 72111840157) to lower the shoulder strap so the seatbelt wouldn't dig into my neck. So I was looking for the same bolt size but fully threaded to mount the bracket.

7/16-20 SAE fine thread. Min Grade 5 or Class 8.8. Available at Lowes and HD. Use 16mm or 5/8" socket head. ALL seat belts bolts are universal SAE, except the hex heads may be different. BMW uses 17mm (11/16") head hex bolts with 7/16-20 SAE fine threads, as do Porsche or MB, except perhaps very early cars prior to safety standards became effective.

glad to help.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
