Rear axle bolt

Postby jimjumper » Sat Jan 13, 2018 4:10 pm

On my 240D there is a large bolt with a thick spacer that attaches the wheel to the axle. Does that bolt have a specific nomenclature and does anybody know what size it is? By the way, if it comes out on its own, the rear wheel falls off! Wheel, hub, tire, and wheel weights. Ask me how I know...:)

Also be sure that bolt does not bottom out before it gets tight and be sure to use the very thick washer (around 1/2" thick on most models). A lot of customers lose that washer and replace it with something thinner and it bends and then the bolt bottoms out before it gets tight.... then the hub gets loose and the splines strip out.
