Default stripped slider brake slider pin mount

Hi folks,


I need to insight here.



I was working on the front brakes and getting everything back together and the threads on the mount for the slider pin for the front brakes stripped out on the steering knuckle.


No I was not torquing on them like a mad man, I know the the torque spec is pretty low.


So.. what do I do? Can this be helicoiled?



Cheers

I've used a slider specifically designed to tap it out. They're a pita but they work.

Thank you Eddie, Can you give any more details about the slider specifically designed to tap it out?






....Found one that should fit and the parts store had it. I hope it works.



Thanks

I recently refreshed the front end of one of my daughters boyfriends car. An 03 Jetta gasser, someone had used an aftermarket slider to repair the stripped threads. The threads on the slide looked oversized and self tapping.

I have seen that before, not really sure how people do it, but it must not be very hard. There is an aftermarket oversize "fix" for that, but you should know that those seem to be limited to that one time install, and after that they never really seem to screw in as nicely as the originals. In which case, the only thing is a new carrier assembly.

Good news there, is that there are aftermarket already assembled carriers available... I know Moog sells them... I am sure they are of Chinesium but they seem to work OK. They come with new wheel bearings, hubs, etc. already installed and ready to go.

Another option is to use this misfortune to upgrade to the larger brakes in front.

I have had this happen and yes, the oversized slider is a one-time-only fix. Last time it happened, I installed a Time-Sert and it has held up great. Helicoil will work, too.

I tried over and over again to helicoil these and I could never ever get the pin straight. Best bet is a new knuckle

Used one on my son's Golf last winter. One of us cross-threaded the pin on a previous repair. Working fine.

These are also available at Autozone if you don't want to wait for it to ship. Use the manufacturer's PN in our product to request.
