    Cardboard in front of heater mounting screws

    Had there been a change from slotted M6 to Hexagon to mount the cardboard in front of the heater/blower unit for MY72?

    Sure about that 71 had slotted M6.

    The original PET shows a M6 cheese-head screw with the lock washer and regular washer. But I notice my car has zinc chromate M6 hex head bolts, lock washer and washer.

    Generally , '70MY's have slotted cheese head screws , '71MY's have slotted hex heads and '72MY's have standard hex heads .

    So 8.8 M6 Karro hex should be correct for 72+

    Speaking of the cardboard cover, is the original one black, and is dark grey a repro part?
