Renault Clio - parts numbers info

Im looking for info on renault parts numbers, for example if I wanted a trackrod end or a new glovebox door catch. I remember seeing a cd on Fleabay a while back but there is nothing now.

The underlying reason is that I want to replace all the badly corroded bolts on my brakes and suspension with new stainless steel ones.

Any help would gratefully received

I'm not sure how the Renault part number would help you. It would only refer back to the original spec part

How will you know if the new stainless steel bolts will have the same metallurgical charisteristics of the originals and also if the original bolts were manufactured by forging, cutting. rolling or grinding

Stainless steel is wonderful stuff but unless it is of the correct quality it can fail and if you don't believe me ask the the US Navy

As madnoel says i would NOT be tempted to replace load bearing bolts,nuts etc with anything but original equipment .

Replacing with non original equipment is fine as long as the item has been designed specifically to do that task and is manufactured by someone who knows what they are doing. I would certainly recommend against buying something for £3.50 on fleabay, always go for a reputable supplier.

Having said that, I canít say Iíve ever seen stainless calliper bolts on a car, they are used pretty extensively on motorcycles, but then they are visible, so itís more about aesthetics.

I would be very surprised if a replacement part didnít have an anti corrosive coating on it and this should be fine.
