Wheel hub bolt.. Please help

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm After some urgent help please.... So long story short I've had to make repairs due to pot holes and snapped springs, passenger side was a doddle but have run into issues with drivers side, so basically where the hub assembly attaches to the strut there is a bolt, that holds the housing to the strut, it is stuck fast and looks in bad shape so I desperately need the name of it or the part number of the bolt, as mine is stuck on so full thing needs replacing. I have everything needed apart from this one bolt. Thanks

Hi Bronwyn,

Google 'Ford 1382597' for the bolt.

Also, you might consider buying a tool like this to spread the slot in the 'knuckle';

I did and it makes the job a doddle.

£8.25 for two sizes I thought was a bargain.

The smaller one does the mk6 Fiesta.

Good luck,

By the way Bronwyn,

It seems that you're doing a good job after finishing the 'passengers side'.

I'm not sure how experienced you are but you will sort that bolt;

Do NOT, ever use open ended spanners unless you absolutely have no other option!

Always use sockets or ring spanners.

Bolts/nuts on cars are notoriously stubborn.

I prefer 6 sided sockets.

I've never been a fan of 'bi hexagonal'

If you 'round' the bolt head, then post on here.

Don't worry;  That bolt will be out soon!
