2013 Smart Fortwo Pure
31500 Miles

I was toying around with my car the other day, and I thought 'hey lets see what under this engine is like'
and as I was snooping around underneath the car, I noticed a little bit of fresh oil on the outside of the bottom of the engine.
I was confused, so I pulled out my camera to see what I couldn't see from the position I was in, and I noticed what looks to be a
totally missing screw. I'm not sure if I'm missing 2 right there, or if it's just one. I can see the threads of where a screw should be in the hole, but no screw.
The car is leaking oil onto the ground so it must be a very very slow minimal leak.

But is there supposed to be some sort of bolt here? If so, does anyone have a part number for it so I can order one and put it in?

Yes there is supposed to be a bolt/screw.
Picture attached of my my car with it.
Sorry I haven't a clue of the part number.
Good luck

Thank you

Oh wow, so it actually connects and plugs that in. I wonder if that could cause the small oil leak or if it only just holds that part on? Hmm.

If anyone has any idea on what kind of screw/bolt it is, let me know. It looks like a thick boy, and obviously some sort of torx bolt.

Boronsmart,
Have you had any success finding out what size bolt you need?
No I haven't. I've been meaning to take it into a euro specialized shop who will more than likely know exactly what size bolts they are and might have some in the shop laying around but I've just been so busy. It's definitely a bit bigger in bolt though, cause I had some smaller ones laying around and they were way too small. I'm not too sure who did engine work on this car prior to me owning it, but it definitely looks like they missed a few bolts. I found another missing bolt while fiddling with my exhaust yesterday as well lol.
