    Hi all,

    I’ve lost a brake caliper retaining bolt from my Puma Defender.
    Can anyone recommend an outlet to source a bolt or has one kicking about in Snowdonia/North Wales please.

    I’ve tried Conwy Land Rover.

    @Nig is this not your neck O' the woods?

    I would recommend Macdonald 4x4 http://www.mcdonald4x4.co.uk/ but they are in Oswestry which is a little bit of a trek from you, but they are good and worth a call to see if they can run one out to you as they are bloody awesome there and brought parts to me when I lived in Duddleston heath near Ellesmere.

    Do you know which bolt?
    Pic would be useful.

    Is this the one?
    What year is the vehicle?

    I am sure yu could limp home with it like that if you take care.

    All sorted now thanks. Hadn’t thought of McDonald 4x4 but gave them a call and they had just one in stock.
    Many thanks everyone.

    Glad you got sorted, i forgot to put my phone on charge last night and went down to 3% battery
    I take it you had alternative transport so not desperate ?

    I'm a long way from Snowdonia but probably having a trip down to Abergele tomorrow so where abouts are you roughly ?
