Door bolts

Recommended Posts

I am trying to get hold of a door bolt (secures the door panel) for a 2006 Elise. Paul Matty reckon I have the wrong type of bolt on my car and they should be screws which then can supply as part of a set for £35 + VAT (I would need two sets to make them match!) Does anyone know where I can get one?

Thanks

Mark

I did take some with my Blackberry but the quality is rubbish. I have asked my wife to take some in the daylight on her iphone which I will upload later.

Hi Mark

What is the thread diameter and what length is the bolt? Am I right in thinking you only need 1? If so can can probably help.

Regards

Andy

Not a very clear photo, but also look the same as mine, which are actually Torx.

(BTW for the minimal extra, best to use Stainless rather than the BZP type.)

Managed to get some replacements from a little shop by Nothfield station. I do not think the original bolts are of good quality as after removing the old old bolts the head went on another one so I have replaced them all now.
