    I am in need of a bolt that goes into the brake carrier after loosing one on the way down to zedfest in the fast lane on the motorway. Luckily I got the zed to the services safely only damaging the inside of the wheel slightly :-(

    We managed to use a wheel bolt for the time being but I now need a new one. Does anyone have a spare one they don't need please? Looks exactly the same as the bottom bolt in the picture (top one is a wheel bolt).

    Thanks!

    Don't know if it's classed as a caliper bolt or carrier bolt?

    I know they are cheap from the dealers thought I would ask here first save me doing a 30 trip to the dealers for a bolt!

    There's a local BMW scrappy about 2 mins from my work so I will contact him he should have a spare.

    It's the collar screw part number 3 and that looks the correct part number so if I have no joy I will go to the stealers thanks snoops
