    Default RCZ THP200 wheel bolts

    I decided to replace the security locking bolts with standard ones.

    However, when I replaced them, I felt a vibration/slight grinding through the steering wheel and accelerator pedal, when turning left or right.

    So I removed the replacement 'standard' bolt to realise a slight difference. The RCZ wheel bolts have a secondary 'thread' at the end of the bolt near the bolt washer. So I put back the security locking bolt (which also has this secondary thread), and now all is well.

    Could it be that the 19" wheels have a thread in the wheel bolt holes? Which the secondary thread screws into.

    Interesting.

    Genuine new bolts?
    That slight thread just locates the wheel
    Genuine wheels?

    My RCZ is so different.

    Just like Pug service Box (for my VIN), gave me the wrong fuel filter. Remember?

    So, it is for the wheel mounting screw (as Pug called it). Both for my French Tart and the RCZ it came up with the same part number.


    5405 67
    RP 98 170 245 80
    20
    01
    WHEEL MOUNTING SCREW
    12X125

    The four I purchased, to replace the locking bolts, were these. And it states it's for RCZ's !

    The wheels are PUG genuine, as listed below. Magnificent wheels. Light alloy, 19" rim and 8.5" width.

    98 006 842 XC 05 LIGHT ALLOY WHEEL
    8 50 J19 CH5-27
    ALUMINIUM LACQUER A - A025
    FXC - DARK GREY

    My wheel bolts have a secondary thread, that is wider than the hub screw holes.

    So I need to do more investigation, and certainly look after the original bolts.

    Looks like I'll remove a bolt and have a look see.

    How do the new bolts compare to the standard bolts in the wheel?

    I will take a pic of the fitted and the ones I purchased.

    A pic is worth a 1000 words.

    OK to speed things up, here are two pics.

    My RCZ has the latter. The former are the ones listed in Service Box. Go figure?

    So by putting just one of the 'rogue' bolts in each wheel, caused the grinding/vibration. Sheeze. . . These RCZ's are not like the Pug's from the 80's and 90's.

    The latter with the indents/ridges certainly looks PSA standard and identical to those on our C4 and C5s. The former without indents/ridges look suss.

    I think you will find as implied above, the larger rings are not threads as such just a bit of "meat" to help centre the bolts in the holes.

    How does the length of them compare? I ask as even though the photos are different sizes it looks like there is more thread on the non PSA bolt and perhaps this is going through and hitting a stop point on the hubs before the washer and bolt head are actually taking up any force to hold the wheel on the hub?

    They are the same length. Yes, it is not a top thread, on closer inspection. Yet, the 'suss' ones, are the ones that came stock with the French Tart.

    These light alloy wheels are very temperamental. Replacement cost $2,000 each, or was it $4,000. I'm not going to check. I noticed, to my surprise how light they were, when I lifted them off the hub.

    That’s not thread it’s just a groove we sell them for 9 bucks (dealer) each eBay isn’t always cheaper but delivery helps I’ve never had a problem with these did you re torque all bolts or just the one you replaced. How did you go with that filter seems like your car has had some mods that’s going to make parts ordering a nightmare

    I wouldn't call it 'mods' as such, because it is as when it left the Magna factory. The fuel filter has the inspection paint line over it and connectors, so it came out from Magna that way. I am amazed. Since only 68,000 RCZ's were produced, I suppose they are going to be a bit different. That flared nut fuel filter is a free flow jobbie too.

    I will release all bolts and torque them to correct spec. Do you know what the torque setting is?

    Cheers . . .

    Bolt dilemma soved.

    If you look back at the part numbers shown in this thread, there is now a RP - revised part for the bolt.

    I'l take a pic of the stock fuel filter when I remove it.

    Tks for the torque number. Cheers.

    5405 67 and 98 170 245 80 are the same part just a different number I think you’ve got other issues what ever they may be.

    I did an intensive search on each of the two part numbers. They are both slightly different, with the RP being the ones I should have bought. So for me Service Box is on target. And I always buy a RP over previous.

    As for the fuel filter, my UK RCZ friends can't help, as Euro RCZ's are not fitted with in-line fuel filters.
