As part of my (probably doomed) quest to cut down on dashboard creaks, I went to check tighten the 4 vertical bolts that hold the dash on.

Someone had been there before me and sheared off the right hand one, so it was loose! Only hadn't fallen out because it was bent.....(There's about 1/4" of thread on the end, but I haven't yet looked to see what it screws into....

Any idea how much of a job it's going to be to get the broken end out?

Anyone have a set kicking around?

I think I've got a couple of them in my 'random Saab bits' box. Do you know the length of the ones you need?

It's the far right-hand end one (at least - haven't dared touch the rest so far!) Handbook says they should be marked with a number of rings from 1-4, and given that there's an unknown amount of threaded end missing, it's entirely possible that they've all been put back in the wrong place and <whoever it was> just "shortened" a longer one to put on the end....

Not sure whether the two outside ones and the two inside ones are each a pair, or whether they are all different.

I think I still have some.

But I know I do not have a full set as I sent my last full set to someone last year.

If any one just has No 4, that would be a start!
Thanks for your wisdom!

I have found a full set. Yours in exchange for the value of a pint in my local plus the price of the postage. PM me if you want 'em!

For info sizes of all.

I think this is the order in which they fit as well.
