Took me 20 minutes and worked a treat.
Thanks Shopman.

Just a quick question. I am thinking of doing this for the noise reduction. Does it really make that much of a difference?

I just use a 3/16 drill bit with a little applied pressure I extended the holes.

Thanks to P-CarDriver and Shopman. This mod is one I need to do. Glad to know the size of the bolts (6mm machine screws 25mm in length). If it doesn't work well enough, I'll try Shopman's idea. Both are great ideas.
