Covid Response: Essential Critical Infrastructure Business

Knowing your OEM fasteners is not only a must, its for your safety!

W709451 S901When searching the internet for OEM fasteners and you find the piece you are looking for is discontinued or unavailable, do not use a hardware store replacement fastener. Please call your dealer, the manufacturer or even Metro Bolt & Fastener to see if we have a suitable replacement. Hardware replacement fasteners simply are not built or suited to handle the everyday wear that an OEM piece can.

Using genuine OEM fasteners is a serious safety measure. OEM fasteners are made to withstand very specific temperatures, pressure, stress, and other environmental issues and address things like strength, break-point, heat treat, the level of corrosion a fastener can withstand, cold resistance as just are just a few examples. Incorrect fasteners or fasteners you pick up in a hardware store may not have the same specifications and this will cause safety issues. Fasteners do what they are supposed to, they fasten. If you don NOT use OEM fasteners you risk parts falling off, breaking, or not having the strength to withstand an accident.

If you cannot identify the OEM part number on your fastener, you need to check your shop repair manual for it (you can usually do this online with a quick google search) or call your local dealer's service department for help. You can always contact  Metro Bolt & Fastener for the best advise or to check our Ford Fastener OEM inventory.
How to search for Ford OEM Fasteners.

W709451 S901 Ford Fasteners use the last 4 digits of the part number (example S403, S56, S439, etc) to distinguish material specs and characteristics such as finish, heat treatment, strength, plating, etc. Many Ford fasteners fit multiple makes and models and serve multiple purposes on the vehicle. MBF's carries a large inventory of current and obsolete OEM fasteners for Ford products. Follow this link to search for your Ford Fastener on our website.

    W705961-S403 is a Ford u-nut/spring nut that is used on stock radio installation in some models and as a grille nut in many models. This nut is used in some way on almost all Ford Lincoln models.
