Bolt size


#1

01 dodge truck 5.9 eng. power

steering bolt (top)what size is this bolt?


#2

I give up… How big is it?


#3

first off:

try a couple of other bolts nearby. ascertain if they are METRIC, or STANDARD.

then try 6 point sockets on it.

then you will know what size it is.

however… on a hunch, if you are having trouble figuring out the size of a bolt, maybe you should take this to a mechanic :wink: (nowhutimean?)


#4

and if/when you get the bolt out, take it to the auto part store where thay can screw it into a bolt template to find out the size threads too.


#5

Do you mean the retainer nut for the wheel? I’ts an offbreed size and can be bought at the dodge dealer only. The ‘bolt’ is a long shaft and a bear to remove. Just give the dealer the model and type of your vehicle and he can supply it. LEE

If it’s a 6 sided (hex) bolt, a 6 sided socket, either mertic or standard should fit well enough to remove it. A 12 sided socket might simply spin on it. Sometimes, you may have to use a hammer to force a socket, or wrench, onto a bolt which is almost the right size.
