No I was pretty pissed about the missing bolts as well. I can't remember the size but I found a pack of 20 at Napa for like $5. I just brought the relay box to make sure I got the right bolts. Mounting that relay box is a major pain in the ***. Took me a good 45 mins to get the bolts threaded tight. One was ok but the other I could only use a Phillips in a 1/4" ratchet and get like a 1/16 turn at a time. If you can find the bolts with a hex head you will be much better off for the final tighten. Finding the plugs was ok but routing the final wiring into the center of the dash was stupid as well. Couldn't find the best path for the life of me and ended up with like 2"s of wire to play with behind the switches.

Here is a picture of the famous plug for those who can't find it, before I remove it from the tap and after

I ran into this problem as well... I got tired of fooling with it and zip tied it to that bracket until I build enough patience to try it again

If you place the relay box at about 45 degrees from horizontal and just below the vent so that the removable cover faces the removable panel I think you'll be able to see how it sets on the mounting bracket.

My problem is I can't figure out where the ground wire goes. I couldn't see anything that looked like the "IP frame fastener."
