Holden still sell them, they are the same as the well nuts used somewhere on the VS airconditioner. I bought mine at Camden Holden, even though you are from the coast it may be worth giving them a call and getting the part number.

The funny thing is when I bought some a few years ago the well nuts for a walky were about $5 each, but for the VS A/C there were about 90c, even though they both had the same part number!

It might even be worth just bolting it up with some washers if you don't intend on taking off any time soon. When using the well nuts it leaves a samll gap between the bumber and lip, which can be the difference between "scrape" and "crunch".

I was at my holden dealer last week, even hit up rare spares after trying Holden.

Was told unavailable. Dunno whether they will let me onto their computer to check out the VS a/c setup.

Thanks! Good job guys.

I had a look on the top of a wellnut and its got "WELLNUT D-1420" on it.Also the bolts are either 6mm or 1/4",can't remember but take a wellnut to a hardware store and try each one.Hope that helps you.

No soup for you!

Mine are marked J-1420. Went back to my Holden dealer today but was unable to find it on the VS commodore.

Does anyone have a Holden part number (eg off a receipt for purchase)?
