No one has a 2010 or later RXT-X with a boarding ladder just tell me what type heads
Ok, this is the third ladder i've installed but the first RXT-X. The instructions contradict themselves. Ok from the beginning of the instructions it say if you have the new style drain plug (which I do). Layout and drill a 7/32 hole for the Bottom screw! Then old style drain plug, skip section, then TOP screws section, if RXT-X then drill 5mm hole and tap for the 6mm Allens all the rest of the models get a 7/32 hole for the self tapping screws.
The problem is I have 6) 6mm bolts and if thats what I am suppose to use, then a 7/32 hole is to large like the instructions told me to drill! If I'm suppose to use the Self tappers screws the instructions dont specify that on the the RXT-X new drain plug style, their is no new/old type section delination for the top bolts.
1) for now I only drilled the bottom hole to 5mm hole so both options are avialiable to me.
2) the hull appears the same material and thickness if a GTI 2012.
3) I think but I'm not sure that I'm suppose to use the self tappers because its a new style drain plug hull.
Anyone with experience please chime in!

This might pic might help you. Mine are Torx bolts and I remember blowing off the instructions, mocking it up, drilling all the way through the hull, tapping all 6 the same and sealing it up. After almost 3 years and 90 hours have had great success and no issues with the ladder. I like it a lot and can't figure out how people pull themselves up with out one. I also think it should be standard OEM issue and not a dang option.

thanks, thats what I though but since I was reading conflicting instructions I took the safe way. Besides it let me watch the football game.
Totally agree no ladder stupid!
