I am located in Perth and was wanting to buy a couple of studs and nuts that go from the EGR pipe to the exhaust manifold on a 4.2 diesel Patrol GU. I went to undo the nuts but the studs are coming out and I thought it would be better to put new ones back but I have not taken them out yet to check the size. Apart from my expensive Nissan dealer where is the best place to try and buy these ? Lots of places sell industrial fasteners but automotive fasteners seem hard to find.

Coventry's might be worth a go.

Give Autoline a call on 1300 310 310 they are located in Bentley and are a reasonably large supplier of exhaust componantry in Perth.
If they don't have what you're after they will certainly know where to get it.

As a last resort try the local exhaust shop they usually have a few not cheap but cheaper than Nissan
The thread will be metric fine some times hard to find but any engine reconditioner or engineering supplier should be able to help

Hey mate
Try searle fasteners in wileton it's behind bunnings on High road very good for metric have a fantastic range I use them for all types of metric stuff from 4mm to 30mm.
Failing that try a co called Wurth products

my understanding is that the pitch is the difference between automotive and industrial fasteners. Searle Fasteners are suppliers of mainly industrial bolts. I wonder where the auto trade sources their fasteners ? Thanks for all suggestions offered and I will check them out..........Peter

Have you checked the Nissan price, seems a lot of effort for 2 studs.

The Nissan price is $12 per stud and $7 per nut. So two studs and two nuts cost $38. Its a water to wine story as long as you can find customers. And yes its a lot of effort for two studs but I have concluded genuine parts are priced for emergency use only and I would like to find other sources of parts. I was thinking of getting some spare wheel studs and may need some other automotive fasteners in the future which is why I thought it would be worthwhile trying to source them.
