Talking Cowl Brass Inserts & Bolts

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:
USD 1,250.00

Item Interest
IN STOCK AND READY TO SHIP


Picking up where RobertRichy left off in this thread and using pictures from Bimmer305's thread.

I am selling inserts and bolts to fix/replace the crappy plastic cowl filter bolts. Currently in stock and ready to ship.

$12.50 shipped via USPS for 6 inserts and 6 matching bolts. No longer selling sets of 4.

All sets will ship in a padded envelope.

Please no PMs haggling over a dollar or two. I'm doing this as a community service, not so I can retire early. If you want a set please Paypal payment to wren57@gmail.com. Or you can send Venmo to @Lawrence-Holcomb. Please send payment as gift and include your name/address in the notes. Orders will ship within a few days of being received as I travel a lot for work. Sometimes it takes a few weeks if I have a long trip.

1- Drill the plastic thread with the adequate drill bit size (1/4") according to whichever insert you ordered.

2- Use some type of glue for plastic to make it stronger.

3- Push/hammer the insert inside the drilled hole.

4- Done.

About to send you the $ in PP!

Correct size Drill bit included? What size drill is needed for a tight fit for the insert?

I used a 1/4" drill bit, not included. If you do not have a bit you may be able to get by using a screwdriver to punch a bigger hole in the plastic. Or if you'd like I can include a bit for an additional $4.
