    Default Towbar bolt sleeves question/help required

    Hi

    so long story short i bought a towbar didnt come with the sleeves for the bolts.

    was wondering if anyone knows where these can be purchased seperately or if some kind person has a towbar not fitted to their car atm would they be able to quickly measure the sleeves so i can make my own from round bar or something.

    THANKS all help much appreciated

    There are 6 tubes/sleeves in total.... 4 are 119mm long and 2 are 119mm long, they are 18mm O/D. The 2 longer ones go nearest the rear bumber. In the boot floor there should be 6 divets (on the boot floor on top of the chassis runner) these should be drilled out to 19mm.

    Hope this helps.

    thanks for reply mate and for the pm

    my bar has only 4 bolts with it, but on closer inspection it does have 6 holes in it. the middle holes are the ones i am missing the bolts for. hate to trouble you more but what sizes are the bolts? and do you know the ID of the sleeves thank you so much

    btw the guy i got it off said it was fitted to his car like this, with the 4 bolts and no sleeves! sketchy!

    just had a quick look at the bar it doesnt have holes for bolts in the middle, just front and rear and the bolts are all the same length. i didnt measure them so dont know what that length is but the rear ones are definitely not longer as took them all out and set beside each other. its a bosal, going to try to find more info on google.
