Default Identify Bolt

Can anyone identify this bolt. I found it under my 1996 318Ti after putting the summer tires on today.

Here is an albums with two images:

Not a bolt I ever removed. Is that oil on the threads?

Agreed. Back to the drawing bored.

What was the last thing that you worked on? That is an awful lot of threads to fall out on it's own.

It's probably fine. Just drive, eventually you'll know. lol.





I can't find it on Realoem. But there are those types of bolts around the A/C. I'm sure of it. I had to make a special tool to get them out.

Have a look here: http://www.318ti.org/forum/showthread.php?t=44481

Can't remember what type of bolts are used to hold the axles into the diff on a ti, but that looks just like the bolts in my 1600's axles.
