Default Need help finding a part number.

on an e46 m3 coupe, I am looking for the bracket and bolt that holds down the folding rear seats.


seen here at 0:45.

having a real issue finding it on realoem.

closest thing I found was:
http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/show...diagId=41_1105

#8, #9 on this diagram, but shows it listed as 2 bolts, which isnt right. Cant find any "real' photos of that part number, so I cant confirm.

Or #20 on this diagram:
http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/show...diagId=52_2731

but that looks like the main bracket, not the cap.

Can anyone assist with this? Thanks!

If you can't find the part numbers I believe I have a spare bracket and bolt if that helps you any. I could throw it in a small USPS flat rate box later this morning for you.

If you throw that part number above into realoem and look at the sedan or coupe part list it looks like the bolt is part number 07147165618. For some reason the M3 parts diagram doesn't show a useful breakout of these parts.

No problem, you are welcome to them. Shoot me a pm with your address and I'll get them in the mail as soon as I can. We just did a complete interior swap (including carpet, dash, and headliner -ouch!) So I definitely have a spare bracket and bolt for you. The bad news is they aren't at my house. They are apparently in the baggie marked "back seat" in the trunk of the car which is at the shop right now. I'll try to put my hands on it tomorrow and send them out on Saturday at the latest. Don't worry about shipping costs. It will be cheap enough to not worry about.

Just an update. That part number I provided earlier was wrong. It seem that bolt isn't a Torx. The good news is I now have the bracket in my hand and I just need to track down that bolt. I'll have it for you shortly.
