    I am printing right now so I can't take a photo. It's where you insert the filament just below the lever on the rope side.

    Ok so the hobbled bolt. You need an m8 hobbled bolt. Its a full bolt with a hobbled portion.

    I have bought this as a spare and have one on my robo copy.

    It makes sense. I can't take mine off right now but I can see how this is the right bolt. I was wondering about the assembly but this makes sense.
