Oil filter cap pulled threads

Recommended Posts

So I was putting a new oil filter in my bike and pulled the threads out of one of the holes for the cap. Anyone know a good way of fixing this as I cant run a tap down it and the hole walls arent really thick enough to drill and helicoil?

first try a longer m5 bolt . see how deep the threated hole is for a longer bolt . as second you can take a 5 mm stud and glue and screw it in as far as go . install the cover and use a washer and nut .

i am so sorry, but if it were me the only fix would be a NUTSERT.

 

Its simple and effective for longterm usage.

 

Helicoil is just a waste of money.
