    Somebody forgot to lock-tite and torque it down.
    A reminder of the importance of checking over our rides for things that shake loose.

    I agree, stop by the dealership and pick up a new one. Do as oldhippie suggested, lock-tite and torque.:)

    Is that a threaded hole or a roll pin for locating the trap door? If the hole is threaded replace the bolt with the proper length with loctite and check torque on all bolts

    As Jack stated,that's the dowel pin for locating the trap door,There should be a matching one directly across from it ,3 o'clock & 9 o'clock.

    Relax, as Jack and Tourbox said no bolt belongs in that hole, or the matching one directly across from it. There is a picture in the service manual if that helps to ease your mind.
