Me Nut Has Snapped

Recommended Posts

Dont worry its not me being rude......I was gunna post this in the other forum, but its not really wheels and tyres......soz to the admin if this is wrong.

Ive just finished painting me calipers, replaced the wheels and one of the bolts that come out of the brake disk has just snapped off when tightening.

Im no mechanic but a mans strength should not snap these right? question, is it safe to drive with one of these missing, and are these bolts which stick out of the disk actually stand alone, or are they a part of the disk, and the disk now needs replacing????

Please help

Many Thanks

there not stand alone...there driven out using a technical tool.....a hammer

but you will need to strip the disc of the hub

you will be reasonably safe as long as you do not load the car

there is a known problem with the weakness of these studs and that is why a strict torque setting is applied to these
