Hello, I'm currently in the progress of going all crazy for modifications on my Smart and looking to install a front tow strap but I'm not able to find in the manual or online the correct bolt since they come in different sizes.

Thank you

16mm Apex thread. not common at all.
the thread is more like a thread without the "point" and good luck finding anything to fit. the size alone is uncommon, and the thread , APEX, is Course.

I took my tow hook to a professional fastener place and they scratched their head over it. thats how I found out..(i suspected now confirmed).

good luck!

Take the "Bolt" out from underneath the pass. side carpet to a Machine shop and ask them what "thread pitch" this is....hope this helps!
