    Battery Tray Bolt Clip

    I'm tired of using regular bolts with a nut on the back to hold my battery trays in place. Where do I get the clip which has the threaded portion attached to it? It would be nice to know what those are called, and where to get the darn things. If anyone knows, I would greatly appreciate it.

    finding the correct size to hunt down might be easier if you could find the mopar parts listing & diagram for the battery tray assembly

    "thread clip" or "U nut"

    Well, that took surprisingly little time. PN:6101283 Looks like they're still available from these guys. https://www.moparpartsgiant.com/part...tery_tray.html

    Now to find out if they remained the same for all the years. I bet they did.

    Re: Battery Tray Bolt Clip

    a little trick I do whenever I pull the battery out
    battery retainer clamp thingy and the nut both go on lowest one of the strut mount studs sticking up from the strut tower.. no lost nut , no clamp bracket stuck under the battery when I drop it back in
    and if you remember to use the lowest stud .. no dent in the hood

    Re: Battery Tray Bolt Clip

    Now that I read this again and understand what you were talking about.

    Those two clip nuts/u-nuts are metric M8-1.25 and any decent hardware store should have them in the nuts n bolts aisle.

    Like these https://www.auveco.com/extruded-thre...-gm-ford-11630

    Whether chrysler, auveco, mcmaster, hardware store, ect they are all made by Tinnerman.

    Thanks a ton. I ordered the parts from the link I posted just because I wanted to make sure to get the right thing the first time. I'll definitely go with them the next time if they're all the same though. Thanks again.
