Double thanks Roger, just saved me the $$ for a set of bolts, now I can blow it on some other do-dad for the Sprinter!

life8dance,
Did you ultimately have the ~$2500 repairs done?
Have you contacted the roadside assist that changed your separated wheel/tire to see if their
insurance will cover a major mistake on the part of their mechanic/operator.
If the lug bolts were truly screwed in until they damaged the brake parts (not sure how that is possible),
but the Sprinter rear wheel was totally locked up, and the only distance was from the side of the road
up onto a roll back tow truck there should have done very little damage to anything.
Yes, ~$2500 estimate is far too high for a fairly simple job.
It looks like you have the alloy wheels on your Sprinter, is that correct?
Then you should have been supplied with a set of 5 short bolts stored down in the tool kit under the passenger side
floorboard with the service jack.
Hope this helps,
Roger

Thanks Roger. I checked my under the floor kit and found the steel wheel lug nuts for my steel spare. Whew. I only have four of the alloy five spoke, five lug nut wheels, and it is reassuring to know I can use the spare if it is needed.

I am still looking for a couple of the alloy wheels for my 06, as I always cary a sixth tire on the roof rack, and someone here on the east coast had one, but the shipping was prohibitive. Still looking for a local Socal option for the 5 lug nut alloy wheel. Thanks to that one poster, who had what I am looking for, but I will keep looking for a west coast wheel for the time being. Thanks to all here.

All,

Great thread .....

Here is the MB part number for the short Lug Bolts for a Sprinter 3500 (2017) steel wheel.990-24-07. I suspect this will work on other similar models.

Just a reminder to all. Don't forget to have the wheel nuts re torqued after a time. The guy at the truck shop said about 500 miles. I think sooner would be prudent. We escaped a disaster when after about 3500 miles on a road trip we heard a knocking noise in the rear. Pulled into a shop and the mechanic discovered all the nuts were only hand tight. Destroyed the bolts. Luckily the wheels were still okay. 6 bolts at about $40 a piece had to get them from MB plus two nights in a Hotel. Could have stayed in the MoHo but the neighborhood was a little shady.

The 000 990 24 07 part number you provided is for a 316/319/2500 Sprinter with single wheels on both the front and rear axles.
If you do indeed have a 516/519/3500 Sprinter, with dual rear wheels, this part will not fit your Sprinter as ALL 516/519/3500
NCV3 Sprinter use lug STUDS...pressed into the front and rear hubs and special extended washer LUG NUTS to attach the wheels
to the hubs, single wheels with offset inboard on the front, and dual wheels with inner offset inboard and outer offset outboard.
If you check Part # 000 990 24 07 it cross references to a FEBI 44685 14 mm diameter x 1.5 mm pitch x 58 mm long.
Note that this is the lug bolt for stock Sprinter NCV3 316/319/2500 series Sprinters with OEM Steel Wheels and the unthreaded
length between the conical/radiused seat on the bolt head and the end of the threads is very short.
If using OEM Factory Alloy wheels, the unthreaded length is noticeably longer.
Wish someone would post a photo of a steel wheel lug Bolt and an alloy wheel lug Bolt with a 6" metric scale between the
2 bolts so the long time mystery about the bolt lengths could be posted as a sticky in the sticky thread on this topic.

Can't help with the steel wheel bolts as I only have alloys, but the MB OEM Alloy wheel bolts are:-

Length under spherical seat - 53mm
Thread length - 24mm
Plain shaft length - 29mm
