Default I need help finding a certain bolt

Long story short I stripped the tensioner guide bolt.

(13086a in the diagram)


It looks like I can order it from NissanPartsDeal but I'd like to find it locally instead. Would a hardware store carry a comparable substitute?

I'd have to guess not. Looks like this has a section of non-thread that would be quite important. You'd be best getting the real thing.

Have you called your local Nissan Dealer(s) in search of the part? Doesn't hurt to ask. They may even get it in faster.


EDIT: If it looks anything like this, definitely not a standard "off the shelf" bolt.







OH... and welcome. Useta reside in your neck of the wood. I miss Security...

Probably at least as bad as a Jeep so worse than a cow.

Junkyard would have it cheap. But if you stripped the bolt, what does the block look like?

I might have that particular bolt in my vast amount of hardware ive taken off many parts trucks. PM me if you still need one.

Or install a solid threaded insert, those seem more permanent to me.
