All you will ever need, just introduce old hole to a 10mm drill bit.

I used a 10mm central heating pipe clip from B+Q. Maybe should have mentioned earlier?

The pole on the parcel shelf is 8.5mm incase anyone was desperate to know. So 10mm is just the right size

Thanks dude, just ordered them. Appears to be a pack of 10? So if anyone wants to buy the left overs, just shout!

Did they work Nate? Did you need to increase the size of the hole?

if you look at my link you can order a clip in various different sizes and they do one that is 9mm and presses into a 6mm hole so will most likely fit straight into the existing hole without the need to drill the existing hole out.
