I thought this would be definitive, but not quite:

https://si.shimano.com/en/pdfs/ev/RD...6800-3608E.pdf

Unfortunately, it lists both bolts as #9, but bolts are of different length. They should've given the two bolts different numbers, as they are not the same part.

Why the need for two different bolt lengths?

Take it to a competent mechanic before you screw things up worse.
A Co-Op will help YOU reassemble it correctly, and not charge you a penny.
but donations are always welcome!

and next time you tear something apart, lay the parts out in the positions and order they came off the assembly.
i place the top roller/hardware at the left, bottom roller/hardware on the right.

Enough with the insult trading. Since Natronious found the answer, tread closed.
