ETKA calls for an 80-amp fusible link.   Someone posted that newer Audis 
have TWO fusible links, so two 30's might be appropriate for their 
application, and that may be what Carlsen sent you.

The mounting screws for the box are  N 013 966 26.  They're self-tapping 
4.2X13STC whatever that means.

The screws to secure the fusible link to the box are  N 014 128 
11.  They're an M5X8.
