Passenger vehicles for 1976 thru 1982 contain many parts dimensioned In the metric system. These parts are very close In dimension to familiar customary measurements in the inch system. It is Important that during any vehicle maintenance procedure, replacement fasteners have the same measurements as those removed, whether metric or customary. Mismatched or incorrect fasteners can result in vehicle damage or malfunction, or possibly personal Injury.
Fastener sizes denoted on illustrations may not reflect metric dimensions. However, since the same vehicle may be built with metric or customary fasteners, care should be exercised in selecting replacement part equivalent to the original fasteners In dimensions, strength and pitch of thread. Both metric and customary fasteners required for replacement are listed In the Warehousing and Distribution Division Standard Parts Catalog.
A special Warehousing and Distribution Division label, saying “Metric Fasteners Required” in red letters, will be used to Identify service parts which require metric fasteners but replace parts which originally used inch fasteners. This label will enable dealers and over-the-counter customers to quickly recognize parts which have changed to metric fasteners.
