Does anybody know the actual wheel stud size of a 2.8i Ford Capri? Would be much appreciated
hi Charlie the stud size is pretty much standard through the ford range so cortina escort granada and so on are all the same, as for the actual size with out my books in front of me i cant help but im sure someone will be able to come forward with the infomation
I know they are M12, not sure about the length.
Thanks for the help
but Ford do a cracking replacement - finis code 6586309 - standard for Scorpio & Ranger -
standard capri length is 22mm protruding, the above are 32mm protruding.. works perfect unless you are running steel wheels..
I found that when I fitted my Fondmetal AT4000s, I got four turns of the nut on standard studs, not happy!!
so now I always change them out ..
standard at 22mm protruding
better with 32mm protruding
no point in being silly!
Ford parts counter, bags of 5 - Scorpio, Ranger..
If I'm not mistaken, wheel studs length is measured from the head, not the threaded part.
Also if my mind is not playing up, Capri wheels studs are 28mm.
The 63mm ones I bought years ago, is indeed 63mm long.
The studs in my pics, the shorter ones were genuine as came with the car.. the longer ones were a bag of 5 over the counter at Ford dealer..
I fitted the long ones u see to cope better with my fondmetal wheels. I use the standard lugnuts as fitted to the Laser
Thank for the help, also so on bleeding the brakes the bleed screw won’t tighten up it just seems to pop itself back out when I try to tighten it, I know it’s know the screw as I tried to swap out with another and it done the same, so I’m unable to bleed my brakes as it’s just keeps leaking any ideas on what it could be I assume it’s going to be the thread on the calliper, and if it is what could be done about this was gunna tap and dye but as it’s the bleed screw and obviously goes to a point I don’t think this would work?
if you have stripped the thread in the caliper i would replace as i dont take chances on my brakes,
It’s not stripped as it goes pretty much all the way in it’s just the final tightening just turns, before I brought a new calliper wasn’t sure if there is a way of doing? As I’m sure this happens?
It is stripped if the bleed screw turns at the bottom.
Or wrong bleed screw is fitted with too short threads so it spins.
You either need to drill out and tap, or get a new caliper.
Sure the spanner do not spin on the bleed screw?
Some of the bleed screws has 9mm head and will spin with a 3/8" or 10mm spanner.
