Where the boot hinges bolt through the boot lid it is recessed or proud depending what way you look at it
Is there a plate or just washers that go between the boot lid and the boot cross brace on the inside?

Thanks

From memory, plain washer + spring washer + plain nut.

I can't remember if there is a washer between the frame and the actual lid, certainly never seen any sort of plate. A washer certainly would not hurt if he studs are long enough...

If I read the Spare Parts Catalogue correctly, there is a "Washer, Medium" [WM0067]between the lid and the frame. 1/4" ID, 1/2" outer diameter and (I think) 3/16" thick. That frame (again, if I read the SPC correctly) goes to the rearmost of the two studs on the hinge, and the nut there as well as the nut on the rear deck get only plain washers [WP0007]. The "front" fixing hinge-to-lid gets a lock washer [WL0207] only and a nut.

Many of the currently available boot hinges have dreadfully-fitting studs, once you try to tighten the nut they fall out almost immediately. I've had to Araldite some in to actually get them to grip sufficiently to hold the nut.



If it was made by man, it can be dismantled and rebuilt by man. Usually just not as easily.

And these are the 'good' ones. There is another manufacturer which makes some really poor lookalikes, the ones with the weak stud mounting are technically an OE product...

Cheers,
