    normaly:
    1:the original bolt is crimped in the base of the turn signal , but easy to remove
    2: it's impossible to remove the two connection without cut the two electrical wires ( problem of diameter)

    this new bolt has the same outside diameter and the same thread metric , but a bigger hole inside , with this bigger hole the two wire with their connection can pass throught

    there is two nuts , the fine nut is for assembly the turn signal (remplace the crimped), he is short because very no much place for assembly the turn signal base , the second longer nut is for assembly the turn signal on the fender

    important :all the news part are made of stainless steel

    By the time the bolts rust, the plastic doesn’t look much better from UV rays and it’s time for new ones anyways.
