Yes it was brought to my attention that what I thought were simply washers are indeed rubber spacers! Makes sense now. These are going to be available next week, Did a short run to test, but it helps with the fitment.

I don't have anything like that on my car. Are they the 'sealing washers' that are in the parts diagram?

If not, they are similar to the Rocker & valance spacers.

Maybe Mark can check the part numbers in the 914 PET & see, then make them too, if not the same!? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/idea.gif)

I don't ever recall seeing anything like that for attaching the bumpers. I do recall them for the rockers and valances however. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

I purchased some few months back which from memory were listed as genuine,my part number is different however......914-559-127-10.
They are 5mm holes but I drilled out six others to 6mm and put under the lower the rocker covers so that the dirt fails out,they are a bitch to get in there but do fit with longer 6mm stainless bolts.
They are hard plastic,perhaps Mark could source the captive nuts for the top rocker panel screws also,I need 2 but can't find them so far.

Yes we can and should add the rocket panel spacers Anyone want to PM me some dims and I can start on those right away!

All I know is this is really old NOS. Possible the part number was superseded.

Yep, it goes on the stud. Supposed to space pad and keep the stud from rusting to the bumper.

It also spaces the bumper up enough that the edges don't want to turn out as the are not making contact with the bumper on the inside. There's not much clearance and some bumpers push out slightly. The additional spade will relieve this pressure.

Looks like they need a washer and these spacers, 10 each per car.

Not the same cause the proper ones are harder and don't compress,you can bend up your rocker panels using fueline offcuts if you like.
You can be cheap if you like but it has it's place,not in this application.

Yes the reason they are there is to be a "stop" and allow to be tightened without crushing the metal in.

Anyone with dimensions?

Mark, here you go. I got these before Christmas in a shipment of lots of NOS stuff for the -6

OD 14.0mm
ID 4.9 to 5.0mm depending on where and which washer you measure
Height / length? 6.4 to 6.7mm again depending on which washer you measure

If you look really closely at the picture it looks as if these have been sliced to length rather than individually moulded and spat out

In terms of material hardness if you squeeze as hard as you can between thumb and forefinger across the OD you can deflect the rubber and squish out to 14.5mm max.

Obviously not an SI based measurement technique, but gives you an idea of what to make them from

These washers make sense until you look at the stud on the bumper top. Mine doesn't look like there's enough length to add a 5mm spacer. I have 3 pairs of oem bumper tops. They all have the same length studs.

Are the large washers the ones that go into recesses for the studs in the bumper tops? The smaller ones act as spacers for the rocker covers and valances at the corners

For the rockers I have been using hard rubber plumber washers takes about two to make the proper gap. I would of course prefer these OEM spec spacers ! Sign me up for a couple sets when they come on line.

They work if you are not using the nylon lock nuts, or at least not all the way to the end of the nylon.

Mark, do you have the spacers available on the site?

Btw. I just ordered a front bumper top and it would be great to order a few sets of the washers.

Cheers
