    For the 659 turbo engine. I need one of the bolt that hold the engine cover on. One of mine has decided to jump out.

    Old thread, but what was the bolt? I'm assuming 10mm.

    Yeah, something like that, I think it had a retained washer.
    Don't need it now though.

    True, you don't... But I do! finally got an engine cover, and it didn't come with any bolts.

    Being a Jap car, one would assume a 10mm bolt... but what length do I need? Are there washers? People of CopenWorld - show me your covers!

    I just so happen to have the bolt from my old cover here (sorry not for sale).
    It's an M5 x 25 Hex Head bolt with captive flat washer. Hex Head is 10mm across the flats.

    Sweet, thanks! Off to Halfrauds, as they are the ONLY people who seem to stock them in my area

    go on ebay and change them all for some s/s.

    I have on the bolts on top of the wings and they go manky looking and rusty.

    you could have my nuts and bolt for less than that! :eek:

    get a pack of 10 or so for that or less on ebay. I've got ones with washer inbuilt into the head. I think I've use ones with allen key/hex dome heads. Damn sexy :cool:

    I think Adam K may be mistaken! :eek:

    M6 seems like the most likely size, as that bolt takes a 10mm spanner. I've tried an M5 and no joy - too loose with no grip on the threads. The length looks to mean sweet bugger all for the bolt, FWIW.

    Bought a load of S/S hex bolts, nuts and washers off of ebay, think they cost me about £10 for around 40ish - have replaced everything I can reach with these, top to the wings the bonnet hinges, door hinges and most in the engine bay.

    Does look rather nice and no rust.

    Confirmed as M6's. 25mm would be the minimum - I got away with both 30mm on one side and 50mm on the other. I did not use a captive flat washer, just a normal penny washer.
