No, it's softer than the metal, so after a while it will compress and it's all likely to come loose. Not a problem if you check it periodically, but as it's under the car......

If you go for stainless, you will need reasonable tools though. Call the engineering company you found anyway, describe the part (in detail, so measure it first) and ask them for a price for one off and for 10 off.

Also ask for a lead time, if the price for one is good enough, put an add on eBay (reserve at cost or higher), when you sell one, order the part

Ah yes, I see what you mean. Again I hadn't thought of that.

It's certainly going to take a little research to see which method would be best but you've definitely given me some top class ideas.

I think I might go into Renault dealer to find out what the part is called, (assuming it has a name) so if I do decide to sell additional ones, at least I know what to list them as.

Anyway, I'm off to interface with my bed now so I'll bid you goodnight and thanks again.

I use a 'Step drill' quite often for drilling large holes with a pistol drill.
