Ever since I'd bought my van, I knew the front doors weren't holding right on their check straps. I decided to take a better look today and I found something I didn't expect and I'm fuming!

The two bolts that hold the strap in-place on the door are missing, on both doors. :*

Can anyone provide me with some information as to the gauge and length of bolts I need to put the straps back into correct operation.

Thanks!!

OK, so no help... that's fine, I found out myself and thought I'd save someone the effort in the future.

The bolts required are M6. I re-attached mine by simply using some 20mm M6 bolts I already had, adding in a locking washer on each bolt for good measure.

It's nice to have straps that work!

I have also noticed how much quieter the ride is, no more creaks from the door card on the drivers side. I but that down to the fact that I re-seated all the rubber settings for the door card lugs. I just drove home with the stereo off because it was so quiet in there! :)
