MR2 MK3 SMT 2003 - Air filter Box Bolts

Post by DANMR2SMT »

Hi All,

Not been on here for a while, having issues with rev's dropping when going into first and reverse...but that's another thread!

I've taken out the air filter box, unfortunately, the two bolts have sheared...looks like they were badly fitted...so I'm trying to find some replacements, so far I can't locate any can anyone point me in the right direction?

Picture attached...

Thanks in advance!

Not yet...they were closed once it happened & was hoping for online purchase to get delivered as without a car to get to the Toyota dealer.

The thread is standard metric, knowing Mr T the heads will be an odd size. You could use any metric bolts of the correct size as a temporary measure. Looking at your picture you would be better running a tap down the holes to clean up the threads. What size spanner fits the heads ?
Black is not a colour ! .... Its the absence of colour

Spoke to Woodford Toyota and the parts manager there is getting them in, £3 and change plus VAT...

Lee there is really helpful I've spoken to him a few times now.
