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.

Where in the world is Al when you need him?

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.
