I have a 2001 205V with the 310 motor. I am putting the boat back together after the dealer winterized it for me. I have one screw that I can't find a place to put in the bag of plugs/hose clamps from the dealer.

The screw is threaded, 9/16" long, has a slot on the head for a flat headed screw driver, and looks like it is self tapping. Anybody know where that screw would go? It also looks like it was painted black on the head at one time. I can't find figure out where it came from.

Thanks for the help.

here is a crappy pic.

It doesn't have any rust or anything on it, so I assume it does not touch water.

was just thinking.......

my surburbans have stuff mounted on brackets.... MAP sensors and the like....
could it be a screw/bolt that would hold an accessory on?

what if the technician found it laying on the floor or in the bilge, and placed it in the bag???

*grasping straws here:confused:

I was just wondering if this was a common item taken off of everyone's boat in the winter. Guess not. I will ask the dealer. I didn't get a chance to stop by today.

I'm thinking it was just found in the bilge or attaches something unique to my boat.

Thanks.

Looks like a Muffler bearing bracket clamp screw

Believe it or not it was from the muffler drain hole on the port side of the boat.

D4mn, and I thought you were going to say the dealer told you it was the muffler bearing removal screw. Glad you figured it out.

I posted that site on a different board and recieved the answer that VW does indead refer to the rubber exaust hangers as

"muffler bearings" in that they bear the weight of the muffler...

So i've stopped using that one and just use headlight fluid - and even then my highbeam halogen is cracked on my 3 series and its filling with water, so I can say hey look i need headlight fluid this ones low.

My favorite specialty item is the dual ball-bearing wifflepod manifold that I run on my '90 ProStar.
