    Default Strut Top Bolt

    can someone confirm these would be the correct size? Just wanted to check before buying, another member on here has just got some but think they have a preface.

    Mine is a 1.8 VVTi 08 plate, they are 3m longer than standard I think but I do have a strut brace to go through aswell,

    Thanks Guys

    Do as i did to check, take one of the standard ones out and then measure them on their measurement guide.
    TBH though i wouldn't of thought they would be any different facelift or pre.
    Don't forget to buy washers as well, wanted them to match instead of having red bolts and silver washers.

    They are the Race Spec Hex Head Bolts, in your link you have down black ones if so they will be part no HX825R then just state your colour, got the catalogue in front of me. As for washers get the M8 x 20mm ones, they are 1.5mm thick.

    Not a prob mate, i'll try and help anyone out.

    Had another look at your thread and yes, they will be the ones. You can order singles as well so you can get the 6 you need.

    I think Paul was on about the domed ones in the engine.
    No, its like any other bolt if you go to overtighten then there is the risk of you rounding them off.
    Use the proper tools and you will have no problem what so ever.
    Use a normal 10mm hex socket on the new bolts.
