Does anyone know the thread thickness of the spare wheel hanger bolt. I want to attempt to make a new one out of threaded bar, but unsure of the dimensions.

Any help is greatly appreciated..

Thanks in advance.

Hi, just checked a spare one after a good clean.

bar is 12mm , thread M12 1.5

If you don't need the hassle there are new ones on ebay quite reasonable

When fitting new one, coat generously with grease, and put cut garden hose on thread protruding below clamp bar.
