Calliper carrier Allen bolts
« on: December 18, 2021, 12:37:38 pm »
Hi looking for a bit of help!!!

Does anyone know the part No. or where I can buy calliper carrier Allen bolts for the rear of my s1 A500?
See attached photo..

Went to do the rear wheel bearings & thought I’d do the discs & pads at the same time to find that the Allen bolts holding the calliper carrier had rounded off!! Didn’t want to damage any further until I had replacement bolts
Cheers

    Search this forum there is a prolific poster who is rebuilding a crash damaged car, I’m pretty sure he replaced these bolts with hex bolts of the correct grade.

    Ah, er, sorry, not quite so prolific on here at the mo (I've moved my constant wittering to another forum where it doesn't look so out of place ;) ) but here's the bit in my thread where I was mentioning replacing the hex bolts with something more sensible:
