Re: renault rear bolt stripping
I dont know if they are the same two bolts, i didnt pay attention.
I removed the bolt in question(the one that stripped the second time) and the threads came out with it(as i expected). I have attached some pictures. It seems like the outer end flares out a little bit. I measured it with a caliper and it seems like the outer end is half a milimiter more in diameter.(I have noticed it in other bolts, but i thought it was just an illusion). Do you think that it might have caused the stripping? How can something like this happen?
Also, i assume the front and rear bolts are interchangable, right?
