technical name for hinge nuts / part number


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

On attempting to remove the doors off of my 110 I ended up having to drill out a few of the bolts holding the hinges on...

Whats the correct name for the nuts helded in the bulkhead pillars..? Maybe the part number too...

And.. was thinking on replacing all the fixings nuts and bolts on the sills etc with stainless steel A2? good or bad idea...??

Many thanks

Also known as a J nut. Mudstuff do a door kit which includes new stainless hinge bolts and J nuts. I think replacing any of the bolts with stainless is a good idea, I do it as I dismantle or replace parts and have had no trouble yet :)

Hi,

Not sure if you are looking for a simple answer - the bolts are called Torx, the ones fitted to my 110 from new rusted in under a year and made it look horrible so I replaced them all the ssteel alen type bolts - complete kit from ebay was less than £40 and I think it looks better and should be far easier to get out at a later date... hope this helps Steve

I just bought new caged nuts and SS screws from my local fastening specialist for a few pounds. The original ones are an odd thread which can be hard to track down but buying matching nuts & screws solved that problem and cost a fraction of the cost of a SS hinge-screw kit.

Tip:- Assemble with plenty of Waxoil (or similar) as this is a real rust-trap, when you come to take them apart again you will be glad you did.
