Battery hold down

Postby SuperLbody » Wed Oct 14, 2015 12:04 am

Hey guys needed some info on the battery hold down. Mine was missing so I got a replacement wedge and bolt but was puzzled on how it threads into the tray. Was there a nut insert on the tray or did they just use a standard nut on the bolt to secure the hold down?

It uses a U-Nut and it is a metric thread size. Match an U-Nut to the bolt you have and the slot hole size to best fit in a replacement. Any competent auto store or hardware store should have them.
