Chaps, could one of you please do me a small favour and have a look at your AC pump in the engine bay for me. The pump sits on a slider affair which is attached to the main body of the engine.

Whilst rebuilding I seem to be missing a square nut or something from the bolt that sits back left, it's the one that is shortest of the 4, you can see in the pic below, in middle of shot, my question is, how is the bolt attached?, is it a square bolt as I suspect and I've just misplaced it or something else?. Hope that's clear folks?.

I bet it's been dropped in there.

Last time I changed the belts on mine. I left that nut off because I couldn't find a way to hold it in place whilst doing the bolt up.

Nearly dropped it a few times in my efforts to get it back on and in the end I gave up.
