Can someone describe for me or (even better) post a pic of what the fasteners for the side louver panels look like? Mine have come undone and have fallen out.
If it's not one thing it's another.....
Thanky! :w

Don't thank me yet...I got called in over the weekend. Will take pics after work and post.

Airbus? What happened?
Along with Airbus, can anybody else help me out with a description, size, pic--something of what these fasteners look like. I just didn't pay attention to it and now they're missing and I need to replace. Are the fasteners some type of bolt or what?
Thanks. :w

I'd be happy to look for you tonight. You are talking bout' the panels....like the one you have to remove to get to the battery right? If this is the case can't you compare the opposite side? Let me know.

Exactly. And no, for some reason they're gone on both sides. Thanks.

Okay....3 stainless steel sheet metal screws on the fender well, round head allen. 5/32" or 4mm allen fits, both sloppy. #12 or #14 or maybe some metric stuff ???

6mm dia. x 20mm long hex head cap screw (10mm hex head). One on the top and one on the bottom. Directly above the top one there is the cowl hood latching mechanism. These are 10mm head bolts and they fit (case you want a sample). The only difference is they are pointed, the louver bolts are not.

Now, hope I attached this picture correctly. Notice the washers??? Hope it helps. :)
