I would say 15mm the original ones are I think 20mm in length, 6mm thread and an 8mm head, so a 8mm headed 6mm thread and 15mm length would suit.

Those that have had the cam cover pieced by over tightening the original bolt or one longer, I have in the past used a number plate plastic screw as a grub screw 5mm, but then you need a 10mm length bolt so as not to push on the grub screw when fitting the engine cover, but as already stated if you do have a pieced cam cover and the engine cover is removed with the engine running just insert the bolt a third in to stop the oil spitting out.

You need a bolt which pinches the engine cover tight, before it bottoms in the hole. You can grind the end from any bolts which is too long.

There are several bolts already on the car that can be exchanged for a smaller bolt, ie the bolt from the under bonnet fuse box to the slam panel, the bolt from the plastic strap holding the A/C pipe & bolt holding the coolant tank, amongst others if you look over the engine you can also use new 16mm X 6mm with a 10mm head in each engine cover hole.

Remember the bolts that fits into the cam cover which spits out the oil is directly over the chain so must not be to long in the first place.
