Air Filter/Intake Hose - Bolt Size?

I'm needing a new intake hose as the tab for my current one has broken off.

The bolt and nut have vanished along with it. Anybody know what size it takes?

Here we are. The screw has come loose at some point so both that and the tab are long gone.

The pipe creates an annoying vibrating sound now so can't wait to get a new one but need to know the size of the screw/bolt.

Yes mine keeps coming undone maybe I should put a lock washer on, theres usually a brass insert in the plastic bit and a 4mm bolt Allen head drill it through and put a suitable bolt all the way through with a nylock nut.

The standard screw is a socket head cap screw with a nylon locking patch on it. I lost the first one, but bought a few spares from a dealer and the first of those is still on there.

I might have to take up on your offer!

I'm waiting for third set of screws to arrive after ordering wrong types so far.

I'll PM you if needed thanks.

Sorry, I just checked. The spares I had were 2 knee airbag bolts. Look the same but are thicker. Sorry.

You know a cable tie through the hole and front panel would probably work fine ?
