    Hi all,

    Trying to find out the size of a nut and bolt that I removed from the Peugeot yesterday.

    It is used as a pinch bolt to hold the ball joint in place to the hub. I can't seem to find a size anywhere, and ideally I need to replace this bolt asap (it has decided to thread it self on the last few turns so I can't get the nut back on.)

    Car is a Peugeot 306 diesel estate.

    Any help appreciated.

    Go and buy it from Peugeot.

    Get another from a scrappy? I'd imagine the bolt used would be the same on all Peugeot cars from the period

    Common issue. Make sure the replacement bolt is perfectly aligned in the hub before torquing up as you can screw the hub else / create an oval shape. Resulting in a knocking ball joint that doesn't sit right.

    OT, but why do so many people use the word "threaded" when they mean "cross threaded", or "stripped"? All bolts and screws are threaded, it's a defining feature.
