Whipped the the other rear bolt out, no evidence of Loctite on the bolt.....but bolt measures from tip to tail at slightly less than two inches in the old money :-\

Do you mean the threaded section or the whole thing? :-\

You measure the threaded section.


An M8(1.25 pitch is implied) x 20 bolt will be longer by the thickness of the head. One that's a lot longer won't be threaded along its entire length, as you shouldn't have the thread inside the parts you're joining - critical bolts, like headbolts, bearing caps, suspension parts are like this.

O.K, if all else fails, I have found Westfield Fasteners who appear to have a good range of Torx bolts etc. Might be a bit of a crap shoot on the correct sizing, but they sell them in packs of five for around 3.50. So could order  two or three  different size packs  and with luck :-\ ....but only if I can't resolve it on here. :y

If they are the standard bolts. I'll send you a couple. I was waiting to see if you needed the longer (which I don't have).

If they are nearly 50mm in length then that would be the same as the one I removed this morning, and to me they must be the longer version....but someone may come up with the answer to that....fingers crossed :y

The short (blue) ones are 30mm from the back of the head...

With the longer bolts fitted, was the drivers seat secure?

Checked them, all OK,but it was the MOT man who found the missing one last week.....he was not happy >:(  and this is  all because the welder couldn't be arsed to put the seat back correctly. So as I pointed out to Nick, I've found a company up in Aylesbury that stock M8 Torx cap screws in 5mm increments right up to 50mm in stainless. Still a bit unsure which will be the right size ..perhaps the 35 and 40mm :-\

Surely you can find a fastener supplier nearby? One that you can drive to? If you could use hex head bolts, I'd expect to buy enough for both seats for a quid.


I would only use stainless if I couldn't get anything else.

The Elite and CDX seat bolts are the same length in both my breakers - 30mm - so as said, there is only one bolt for all models, NOT different lengths. The EPC confirms one seat bolt length
M8 x 30 for all models as well....

Al's sending me a couple, but I'm going to take all the bolts out on both seats and take a look at them.....just to see wether they are bodged. Can't see that, but the cars interior was changed way back before I got it and I think just for arguments sake it needs to be bottomed out. So thanks for your advice and if I get stuck I'll give you a shout. :y

That must be why I needed longer bolts to retrofit the Elite drivers seat in my ex plod then...  ::)
