Citroen BX torx head bolts

Post by MikeW » 12 May 2001, 22:28

I notice that the replacement bolts from Andy spares lack the spirals around the bolt shanks that the originals had,so are they truley stretch bolts or just copies and should I treat them as one time torque'rs or as in the older HEX types which require a second tightening after some milage.
Thanx in advance for any input

The bolts we sell are true stretch bolts, to be used and tightened only once! I think that you will find that the bolts Citroen dealers sell are of the same design as our own.
Once you have torqued down the bolts (or tightened by degrees)there is no need to re-tighten them.
