I need some new nuts!

Theyre for the rear lamp assemblies, M5 thread. I've seen and used these before, but have no idea if they have a specific name, or whether they're a specific manufacturer's item. Your investigative help in preventing my rear lamps from falling out would be appreciated!

Or Tracy. Fkn impossible to get hold of.

I think you are getting your nuts and your studs confused.

Cheers, Steve.

I've searched all over the web, and can't find them. They could be collar nuts, sleeve nuts, tube nuts, shoulder nuts or bloody walnuts, I just draw a blank. I suspect they may not be Toyota items, because a Toyota is likely to have a precision-drilled hole for its lamp studs, rather than the more haphazard Lotus 'big hole in the GRP' arrangement. So I think this could be a Lotus-specific securing arrangement, albeit using proprietary nuts like these.

The problem is that the rear lamp studs do not protrude far enough through the GRP to put a standard nut on them. Hence the extended bit, which goes through a suitably-sized flat washer.

If it were for a wheel you'd call it a 'sleeve nut' but to me it looks like a hex bodied connector but that's been partially turned down to form the shoulder. BTW, what's its part number?
