Urgent part ID and help getting replacement

Hey I'd really appreciate some help from anyone. Was changing brakes at weekend (front discs and pads) and one of the 2 bolts that fixes the caliper bracket to the wheel hub sheered off and Im really struggling to find a replacement! Can anyone please let me know a part number or supplier for a set of new bolts. I'd really appreciate any advice

If you've got the old other bolt just measure that? its also probably metric fine 1.25mm pitch should easily get two or four on Ebay

Re: Urgent part ID and help getting replacement

Hi Eklipze3k thanks for this - I also found it but wasn't sure if it was the right thing 👍
John202020 - thanks so much for the tip I didn't think about that I did try B&Q but needless to say they were crap!

I had to go to a proper nut and bolt/fastenings place on our local industrial estate metric fine not as easily bought over the counter vs "metric 1.5mm"

It's not just a question of matching the size & thread pitch; it also needs to have the right material properties. Using a bolt with insufficient tensile strength could lead to bolt failure in service, with obvious dangerous consequences in this application.

Check the markings on the head of both the original bolt and its intended replacement.

There's plenty of information on the internet about the material properties of bolts. You could start by reading this.

Re: Urgent part ID and help getting replacement

You're welcome to pay more?

You state that the oil socket is not a bolt but it is a hex bolt, however, being made from low torque plastic may benefit from a hex socket rather than a 12 point hex socket. If care is taken there is nothing wrong with using a 12 point hex socket.
