SR20 manifold heat shield bolts

Recommended Posts

Hi guys as above need to know the size/thread of the stock manifold heat shield bolts

 

My heat shield is holding on with 1 bolt as the others seem to have come loose and dropped off so i'm getting lots of lovely rattles from it at the moment

 

need to get some new bolts but want to know what to get

 

cheers

M10x1.25 or 1.5 thread pitch . Take out the remaining bolt and match them up.

Hmm. I would have said m6x1

 

Can't take out the last bolt, go to bolt shop and match up new stainless ones?

10mm socket, 6mm size shank. And 6mm bolts are usually 1mm threads.

Just because I'm lazy and don't feel like taking the last bolt off out the front of the bolt shop after I have driven the car there and its nice and hot, any idea how long the bolts are ?

M6 x 12mm long will do. I wouldn't use stainless on it, they will probably bind up and snap off when you want to get them out.

Why not pull the bolt out and measure it while it's cold?

Thank for the sizing

 

As for pulling it out while its cold, a mixture of being lazy and paranoid that it might snap off when trying to remove it. Then I will have 0 bolts holding the heat shield down :cursing:
