Anyone know where I could source one of these from asap please.? Or a similar sized normal bolt.
I have a muller'd one preventing me from changing the o/s/r bearing on my Cougar, but as they share the same brakes I thought I'd post here..
I have a generous friend offering help, we will give this a bash tomorrow and get it off and the bearing changed..
..are you trying to remove/replace the single sliding bolt for the caliper or the two bolts that hold the caliper bracket to the rear knuckle..or all 3??.. In any event I'd use the genuine Ford hardware which is rated for the brakes etc..bit risky using any old blt in this location!
Thanks for the info, and yes I am removing the that hold the caliper to the knuckle.. Tried my local dealer and the chap reckons they may have some in stock for me to have.. Failing that, I have a scrappy that has a few mondy's in stock so getting a few shouldn't prove to be a problem..
Turns out Ford wanted to sell me a complete caliper, so am off to a scrappy on the weekend and get what I need, along with a few other bits and pieces.. If anyone wants anything let me know and I'll see what I can do for you..
A complete caliper just for a couple of 10p bolts...
I changed my rear discs recently and I prepared myself for the eventuality that I might chew up these bolts by buying some normal hex heads to replace them with. In the event, I freed up the torx bolts with some plusgas and they weren't too bad, so they went back in. I think I read that M6x25mm were the equivalent size, but don't hold me to that. The answer is somewhere on this site though
