Time Cert Kit for wheel carrier


Recommended Posts

  • Moderators

Does anyone one what time cert kit is needed to repair a stripped wheel carrier hub, Was removing caliper bolt on front driver side and when bolt came out so did a good size coil of aluminum thread from hub.

 

The factory caliper bolt should be a M12X1.5X72.

Thanks JFP, there are many kits out there. would you happen to know of one with exact dimension in insert? Where should go to purchase? A Porsche owner on rennlist said he found a kit with exact match but did not state where he purchased

The Time Sert or Helicoil repair kit has to match the thickness of the area on the carrier where the caliper bolts to it, as well as the fastener itself.  Companies like Fastenal that specialize is fasteners should be able to help you, or if you have the kit number the Rennlist poster used, you could probably find it cheaper (and perhaps faster) online, as even Amazon sells them.  You can also look here: http://www.timesert.com/html/mtrcsert.html

Thanks JFP, I see there is a Porsche /VW kit but not size M12x1.5x72. I will keep looking but if you happen to find kit number for caliper bolt please post. Thanks!!!!

JFP,cant find correct size for the length of thread needed for the insert. I think I measured the thread needed for insert to be 36.83mm that's the length measured when the caliper bolt is all the way in the caliper bolt hole itself. I under stand that the diameter is 12 and pitch is 1.5 but now I cant seem to find correct size insert, biggest ive seen is 30mm. The poster on rennlist was back from 2008 and said he found exact size but did not specify.

I had an additional thought on this repair; a couple of companies produce stainless steel replacement stud kits for mounting the calipers, like those used on the cup cars.  You would still need to do the Time Cert repair, but instead of using new caliper bolts, you would install the corrosion proof stainless studs which would never have to be removed again.

This would add about $100 to the project, but you would never be faced with a repeat of the problem you currently have.

With studs it will be difficult to move the caliper from the hub i guess. There is very little lateral clearance around there, you can give it a try anyway.
