    random screws under door card??

    hello everyone, just took my passenger door card off to get at the speaker so i cant start buildin my mounts. when i started to pull the door off (after takign all of the screws out), the bottom clips came out and 2 random silver screws fell out!!

    any idea where these are from or has someone just happen to have left to loose screws behind my door.

    cheers

    Screws or bolts?

    The only silver fixings are the three 4mm bolts that hold the wing mirror on.

    I assume they've been dropped in at sometime, and replaced.

    What Keif said, could be wing miror bolts, but would be good if you can post a pic up. They could be completely random!

    Looks like the wingmirror bolts to me, check behind the gusset where the wing mirror fixes to the door, see if any are missing.

    I can't see the pics, my lappy doesn't like Imageshack for some reason.

    *EDIT*
    Or my desktop

    considering they were just loose under the door card and that the wing mirror is still on pretty securely ill just assume they were dropped in and replaced for now. its far too cold for me to do anything outside today.


    whats worse is i cant even find my jigsaw to cut out my speaker adaptors!! another weekend wasted it seems..

    thanks for the help everyone
