Hi Folks,

Wonder if you could help me with the nut/thread size for securing air suspension compressor. I have bought 3/16 and 1/4 nuts and the 1/4 is too big and the 3/16 is too small.

Many Thanks

Dougie

Can't help you with the original size, when I had the issue I changed the three bolts and nuts ......not difficult.

Hi Daf11e, I though the bolts were moulded into the plastic box? I felt underneath and couldn't feel a bold head. It would be an easy fix to get them out and replace, but I didn't want to attempt and possibly break the plastic box?

Dougie mine were not moulded (MY2000) a simple fix using some nuts as locknuts to secure the bolts to the base. I am sure someone else will be along if mine were unique......but an easy fix.

From the factory, there are studs moulded into the EAS box - but sometimes they get ripped out if they have been overtightened, or they rust a bit if the EAS box lid is on.

But, to the original question, the bolts are a Metric M5, and normal metric M5 Nyloc nuts work fine.

Hope this helps,
Marty

For future reference, although there are a few Imperial sized nuts and bolts on the car (mainly on the engine where they've never changed since it was designed 50 odd years ago), everything else is standard metric sizes.
