    Question First Aid Kit Front Seat..what kind of screw?

    So I got this container and bracket for my front seat for $20 without any mounting accessory and I'm wondering how I can find what size of screw I need that'll fit into the hole of the front seat where the brackets are mounted. I see the mounting holes under the seat though!

    Trevor, I just removed my first-aid box to see how it is attached for you, and in my car the unit just slips in under the pass. seat. There is a plastic tab in the center that has to be pushed up to remove it, but to install it, it literally just slips in place over the two plastic channels on the seat bottom, and the latch locks it in place so that it cannot move forward. I hope that this helps!

    Is there a special part no that I need to search for when I'm at Home Depot or Lowes? I'm not a screw guy...I have no idea what to ask for... :S I see you put there T30...but what about the length? I know when it's too long it'll interfere with the sliding of the front seat support for the thighs.

    the part number for the official screw used by BMW is 07 14 9 169 302. it's less than $1.00 retail a piece.

    The pitch is M6x12. You can always do what Dane provide too.
