GTV 3.0 24v

Rear Tie-rod bolt

Hi all,

First post on the forum, I have been the very happy owner of a 1999 V6 GTV for 3 years. Unfortunately this year it failed the MOT on a rear bush, so I thought it would be a good idea to do a refurb on the rear suspension. So far everything has gone quite well until now, I got two new tie-rods but I need to re-use the bolts, however one of the bolts has completely seized and won't budge, I have tried heat on it (maybe not enough). Any ideas on where I could get new replacement bolts? I tried the dealers but by the time they put in a minumum order it was going to cost 85 for nuts and bolts!

Any help appreciated thanks in advance.

I get all the nuts and bolts for my Alfa from here (they haven't been defeated by a thread or length yet!)
Quality Suppliers Walton on Thames fixings fastenings and engineering consumables
prices very reasonable but don't know if they ship as I only live up the road (can help with collection and postage if you get really stuck)

If i remember correct they are M10 bolt and nut? Just get one new pair at the local hardware store. Dont bother if it isn't a fine pitch thread. A course will do fine!

I might have some knocking about somewhere if you're struggling to find any.
