Re: MKII Megane Subframe bolt threaded

I have come to a possible bit of a bodge solution but i think will do the job. Just above where to bolt crews into the car there's a plastic bung remove it and it reveals a recess where the welded nut, i think, lives. That the bolt screws into. I dont have the tools to remove the nut, if it is just welded on and tried hitting it with a hammer. SOOOO ive thought a bit of threaded rod just ever so slightly smaller so that it fits through the hole, locking nut on top in the recess another on bottom bobs your uncle problem solved. well hopefully.
