From what I can see, they are the same irrespective of seat type for facelift cars. I will have a couple spare from Elite seats and CDX sests if any use to you. I can physically check the bolts on fully electric Elite seats, and also on CDX manual seats with electric height adjustment just to confirm whether they're the same or not.
I believe they should be M10 x 42 with a torx cap head?

Elite driver seats require longer bolts.  :-X

The bolts are identified by the colour of the threadlock ring. Choice is blue or ruddy. If memory serves, the ruddy ones are the longer Elite ones.

I have five of them with the blue threadlock if required  :y

If you do that, you ought to be able to buy the bolts you need from a local supplier tomorrow with no hassle. Allen cap heads ought to do, if the heads fit in the runners and clear the slides.


M10 sounds too big to me, I would have thought they're more likely to be M8. Hell, four M6 bolts would be good enough for a seat, but you are stuck with the original captive nuts.

When I had the front seats out of my 2002 3.2 Elite last year, the seat runner bolts definitely had blue thread lock on them - certainly NOT a 'ruddy' / pinky shade.

You'll note that I started with 'IF'  ::) The colours 'MIGHT' be the other way around.

I raise the difference because I don't have the other to confirm which is which. It only affects the drivers seat. But I am not going to buy another Omega to look. :-X

The relevant seat rail bolts may actually be 90482552 which are M8 x 30, not the previous ones I described, but it will help to identify them when you have retrieved an original.

Sucking eggs and all that.

As these are thread locked, I would recommend hitting the bolt a few times. I normally use a punch and whack it with the hammer away from the torx slot. This cracks the thread lock and allows for easier removal.
