Can anyone clarify to me what size the bolt is that is under the rear wing of a 69 beetle, that goes from the body into the chassis, near the top of the shock,

Thanks

VW never used 9/16 AF bolts, they only used Metric.
Some previous owner may have bodged it with an imperial bolt, check that they haven't damaged the thread tapped into the chassis /shock absorber mounting 'horn'.
