View Full Version : T1n rear door hinge bolt ?

04-21-2019, 12:35 PM
Going to put on a new rear door on my dodge 2006 (2500, I did a dry run so I know how to take the handles off and what bits I need. But one bolt type has me stumped , it is the external Torx type ( 4 of them ) that you have to go through the 2 holes in door connecting to hinge, seems like it should be an E10 torx but I may be wrong. So the two questions I have
1 what deep socket bit will I need ?
2 I would like to replace the bolts, but cannot find them online , need to know 100% and all I gave found are illustrated picts with no details to see if it’s the external Torx type.

See picts

( upstate NY salt has rotted out my doors pretty bad which is why I’m replacing

Well the sockets donít need to be deep. As to the size, whatever u put on there was the wrong size, they are heavily painted so maybe the correct size will need to be hammered on. I donít know my sizes in female Torx sockets (whatever they are called) but just get the one that needs to be hammered on, or burn off all that paint.
As to replacement bolts, just get whatever metric bolt fits the bill, they donít have to be Torx unless the assembly will only fit a Torx.
