Renault 5 door pins
« on: 22:30, Tue 16 April 2013 »
After a looong winter it's some renault 5 time again, and first thing I want to look at is my drivers doors which clearly needs some new door pins. BUT which type is it? I bought a repair set with torx type last year and they seem wrong I think.

This car is a january/february 1988 model and I read that the later models had torx.  :?

They look like roll pins.

The Torx pins will clearly have a head on them.

Hi Ash-Lee! Yeah you are probably right, but can't really say that I find the brass insert on the picture match 100% with this http://www.gt-turbo-spares.co.uk/cart/index.php?cmd=products&prod_id=38 but it's probably correct.

There the ones you want bud. If you look yours have rubber grommets on the ends of the pins. ;)
