After seeing some information on an older thread we emailed firstname.lastname@example.org from http://www.bel-sol.de who are the company that supply the chairs to VW, we emailed to check as the chairs are not on their site catalogue. He is going to hopefully send us some spare parts (we sent him a pic, below), he was really helpful. I'm just waiting for a price, postage cost and payment method information from him now he has our address, will keep you posted.

I had the same thing happen, lost both the bolt and spacer while using the chairs on a canal boat...thanks to the information here I also emailed Wolfgang Haug and received the same excellent result. He said it was 'Set 2' and helpfully attached a pdf showing the different bolt sets.
When the 'Set 2' arrived I wondered why there were 2 locking nuts included. I guessed there must be a nut inside the leg for the bolt to engage but turning the bolt on either side feels too easy to be going into a locking nut. I'm a curious bloke (apparently) so I eased out the plastic insert to have a look and saw there was a locking nut on the far side but the bolt just looked too short to be going right through to engage the locking ring. There's also a receptacle for a bolt on the near side of the insert so I pushed the spare locking nut into this and now the bolt goes through this as well as grabbing the first couple of turns of the original on the far side. Sounds more complicated than it is so hopefully the photos will speak a thousand words. It certainly now takes a fair effort to screw the bolt in and feels more like a locking nut - and it ain't going anywhere now.
