Trying to install my external amp and the bolts I thought I had for it aren't right. They are M6x1.0, but won't thread in. VIDA says it's an M6 bolt, but no thread pitch info. Any thoughts? All of my Volvo-related M6 bolts are 1.0 pitch. I hit a couple HW stores and only M6x1.0 can be found. The online Volvo sites say NLA.

Chase the threads with a tap or file the end of a bolt to a greater taper to help it start.

That's probably next.

Tapping it out seems to have fixed it. I did read online that some of those bolt holes aren't tapped. Seems weird and VIDA doesn't say to tap it.

I wouldn't worry about it. I've been running the same amp and sub in my last 5 or 6 P2 XC's and I lost the bolt 10 years ago!
It won't move after the carpet is put back down if you just lay it in the proper space.

I had to tap the holes for my NA when I installed a PA-200 + HU-803.
