Re: towing hook

I used a M16x2.0 mm tap on my lads mk2 phase2 2001.
For other viewers-
It also fits Meganes and Scenics around same age.
Probably same for most other of the long welded nut types.
Tap that hole now before it's needed. They rust like heck.
Fill hole with grease after tapping.

You might need to use the tap in a socket because of access problems.
I had to use a spanner. Very tedious.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
