    ZLET cam cover bolt size???

    I am after some shiney anodised or chromed bolts for my cam cover to replace the OEM ones, firstly, what size are the bolts? M10's???

    Secondly, does anyone have any recommendations where to get them from, other than Pro-bolts (which is where i'm currently thinking).

    Thanks!!

    cam cover and rocker cover are same thing!!!

    although technically speaking its the cam cover on modern 16v engines as they house the cams not the rockers like engines of old

    the name is just used by some - but its the same thing

    I would not use anodised aluminium bolts on your engine as they can sometimes sieze so you cant remove them. If you must use them buy some anti sieze powder at the same time.
    Alternatively you can buy coloured stainless steel cam cover bolts for the Astra on ebay or at carbolts.co.uk these are much less likely to sieze in your engine.
