What size bolt secures the headlamp?


Asked by Sep 03, 2013 at 12:26 PM about the 2006 Dodge Caravan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I bought replacement headlamps, but the original bolts are too short. I can't figure out what
size bolts these are. Could they be metric?

Steve, the best way is to take the original bolts to a local hardware store, find a nut that will screw on properly and purchase the approriate threaded size bolt and the correct length.


I tried that. There are four auto stores near me. A 1/4-28 is the closes fit, but does not work.

It turned out to be metric, an M6

I found the metric M6-1.0 x 20mm flange bolts were the perfect size for the new headlamps.
