NUTS AND BOLTS

Really?

I've had loads off them, no issues.
They must have furloughed all their good people then.

Two simple bolts ordered on 24th October that never arrived. After a week I got in touch and they apologised like you'd expect and offered to send another two out. They never arrived either. They then offered to send me another set and those were supposed to have arrived today but haven't. I get the Coronavirus is affecting things but in my experience Royal Mail 1st Class is pretty good and 2 days at the most. In fact to back that up i bought 2 rear hub axles off a lad on the forum and he sent by Royal Mail 1st Class on Wednesday and they arrived this morning.

My suspicions were alerted when they wouldn't provide me a tracking number so I could see what was going on. And after putting more pressure on them it turns out they didn't even bother sending them. Plenty more companies to buy from.

And i ordered 50 bolts off Cromwell same day as Falcon and I got them the next day. Maybe because it was such a small order of two bolts costing £5.99 they couldn't be a***d to send them out. Maybe you have to buy in bulk to get half decent service. Who knows!

Foolishly I didn't heed your advice, and just ordered them online!
No communication as yet to say if they are on the way, so I might have to do some chasing

Forgot to update.
The bolts turned up in good time and are the correct item.
I would happily use that supplier again.
I also had good service from these guys for gaskets, clutch cable etc. https://www.autopartspro.co.uk/renault-carparts/clio-ii-bb0-1-2-cb0-1-2/17869
Think it all comes from Germany though!

Update - When i changed my rear beam at the weekend on my standard Clio 182, I found the bolts from the chassis to beam mount - M10 x 1.5 x 130 mm - QFT6001058Q didn't have enough thread on them. The only way I could torque them down was to add several washers which isn't ideal.

I tried to add some more thread to each bolt but the nut wouldn't go past the old thread.

I hadn't realised that the other guys have race/track builds so have plates in place for cages adding to the depth. I've since been onto my local Renault dealer and they're still available, so it's set me back £8 a bolt - part number 7703015200 for reference. Costly but the job has to be right.
