    Default Spinny egr bolts yay.

    Hi all,

    due to my sheer manly strength I have knackered one of my egr bolts upon tightening, not too bad I first thought untill exhaust gasses are seeping through blower and I am suspecting this to be the culprit.

    Now just before reaching full tightness it just slips, does this point to the bolt or the bolt reciving end to be at fault?

    If its bolt then not to worried but if its the engine side bolt hole thread then whats the best fix for that?.

    Thanks guys.

    Take the bolt out and try to run a dye down the thread . this will clear out the bore , at this stage probably best to see if the bolt is damaged if so probably best to replace .
