What is this bolt for? 130i

Post by Milkie » Wed Jun 06, 2018 8:38 am

Was changing the waterpump on my 130i. Took out what I thought was the top waterpump bolt. It wasn't, but don't know what it came out of!?

It's an Aluminium bolt that is 97mm long, 7.8mm wide.. Thread Length is 87mm.

I need to order a replacement, had a look on RealOEM, but unsure what it is from. :?

Anyone else have an idea what it is I need to order?

Where did you take it out from would be obvious question ? Im guessing it was somewhere above the waterpump bolt ? I will have a look on my car at lunchtime for you,

Hi Ian,

I wasn't able to see as it was getting dark and couldn't see anything led down under the car. :roll:

I think you are right! Air Con bolts are 87mm long, I'll guess thats the thread length. Looks like its a winner! :wink:

Nice one. :wink:
