Wanted, Steel wheel bolt(s)

Post by bowei001 » Wed Mar 14, 2018 2:54 pm

Does anyone have a spare steel wheel bolt for a BX Mk1? These bolts have a slightly domed head unlike the flat heads on the later bolts. Modern Citroen/Peugeot bolts seem to have a slightly dished head and not enough shoulder to hold the wheel trims tightly.
Thanks, Ian

The Mk2 bolts that I got from a breaker had flat heads. There must have been a change point sometime but it probably wasn't recorded in a part number change. My 1986 Mk1 has the domed heads. I must admit to being a bit OCD!
