All American threads are the same bar diameter and pitch. measure bolt diameter and count number of threads per inch, use HT steel and plated; result.

Need to know thread and size of bolts on brake calipers nissan almera 1500 2001


When you buy replacement calipers they usually come with new bolts. If you have the old bolts, use thread gauge or die to check.

What size is the exhaust flange bolts on a 2004 sportster thanks


The exhaust flange is held on by two nuts on studs in the head. The studs are 5/16" diameter. The nut outside size is 1/2". Now the threads could be either national course or national fine threads but most are national fine. I hope this answers your question.

Good Luck

79 sportster left side upper motor mount bolt size


On the Ironhead Sportster, the top motor mount bolt that goes through the frame is usually a 1/2 inch bolt. I'd use a grade 8 fine thread bolt with a nylok nut on it. Make sure you "shim" the top motor mount to the frame with the appropiate amount of washers so as not to "torque" the frame. If you do, either the top motor mount or the tab on the frame will break from the torque and vibration.

I have a 2000 Passat and going to have my friend replace the rotors and breaks. I am preparing to fix it but want to know what sizes are the bolts for the calipers sliding pins. If you know the Bolt s


For a wrench or for the acctual bolt size.
To remove front pads..you need 8mm allen socket to pull the caliper guide pins, then 17 or 18mm..To remove rear pads...you need 13mm socket for lock bolt on guide pins and 15mm open end wrench (thin section to hold guide pin while you remove lock bolts..I ground down a spare wrench). You DO NOT have to remove rear carriers to change rotors..just remove lock screw and angle rotor out. The B5 Passats don't have the electronic parking brake so you don't need VAG Com to change pads.
Installation tips:
Clean and regrease the guide pins with "synthetic caliper grease"
Rear lock bolts come with preapplied thread locker and "are not to be reused"..I just wire brush the threads and use some Loctite Blue on em. I smear just a little antisieze on the inside bore of the rotors and on the lock screw threads to prevent corrosion and make next rotor change ez. Torques:
Front caliper guide pins:18 ft lb
Front carrier bolts: 89 ft lb
Rear guide pin lock bolts:26 ft lb
Wheel lugs: 89 ft lb

DONT KNOW HOW TO REMOVE THE BREAK CALIBER


To remove the caliper, you need a torx head tool (can't remember exact size) to remove the two slide pin bolts.(inside the two small rubber boots at each end of caliper) After getting them loose, remove the brake hose, then remove bolts and caliper. (don't loose the two copper washers...if they aren't in the new caliper box you will need them.) Check and see if the caliper retracts easily after it is removed. If it does, the rubber brake hose may have internally failed and is your problem. If piston is very hard to move, get a new caliper. Replace both side brake pads, not just side you are workingon. (recommend both calipers as well but most times it works fine with one.
When replacing, make sure slides are free in calipers and thread pins by hand so that you don't cross thread them. After it's back together bleed front brakes and before moving car step on brake to re-set pistons.

Threads stripped.


It is an odd size, I believe 9mm thread and Heli-coil makes a kit just for this job. I know because I have the kit at work! Try another Autozone or ask to speak to the manager and have him look it up, it does exist for sure. This is actually a pretty common problem. If you're still stuck tomorrow and I will dig up the part number and post it.
