approx 7/16", that what I used and it fit perfectly. And when It comes to the carpet, the directions state that the bar should be installed over the carpet with the hole only big enough for the bolt to fit through. But after trying it didnt fit (and i was also using a rubber mallot). So I only trimed the carpet on one side just enough for the bar to fit in place. It's a very easy install. Good Luck

if its the one from Focus Sport you have to drill a hole through. No carpet cut just drilled through the carpet and forced the bar in place.

Thanks for the writeup I am going to be doing this soon. I guess the rear wheels should come off right?

No the rear wheels don't need to come off.
