I found the bolt or terminal post in the attached photo on the floor of my Fiat Ducato cab. (2008 Hobby Toskana, Ducato 2.3). I have no idea where it came from. Any ideas would be gratefully received. The most recent work on the van has been the installation of a new battery under the cab floor and a repair to the instrument panel. AA battery in photo for scale

It is from the left rear corner of a cab seat swivel - it locates the upper plate of the swivel when in the forward/driving position.
After putting it back in by hand you need to turn the swivel so that a hole (for this purpose) in the upper plate is above the bolt and then use a 20mm socket to tighten it.

That should read left rear corner of the driver's seat swivel. If it's come out of the passenger seat swivel then it would be the right rear corner.

Steve,

That's brilliant. Thank you very much for such a quick response and helpful description of how to sort it.
