Default Damn Bolt Fell Out

Got a P0401 Code which suggests the EGR so I looked around a little bit to find out that one of the bolts (the larger one circled in picture) fell out to the EGR tube.

Went to the dealership but they didn't have it.

Can anybody tell me size/thread so I can try to replace it? I tried seeing if the smaller (8mm I believe) would screw in for reference but it's too small.

I do not have a 1st Generation PT Cruiser so I can't verify the information below.

Verify the bolt information listed below with the web link below. I don't have all the specifics for your PT Cruiser.

Hex Flange Head. M8x1.25x35.00
Hex Flange Head. M6x1.00x16.00

Thanks for chiming in ptcruisersteve! I clicked on that link and guess I'm not savvy enough to find the bolts to compare to the hex head measurements you gave. But, I'll take those measurements you gave to my local fastener store and see if they'll work.

Thanks again!

M8x1.25x35.00 is the larger bolt but you might want to measure the diameter of the hole. That might give you a better idea of what size it should be.

Below is a link that gives you information on the different size bots.

Good idea! I'll see if I can get a measurement. And again, thanks for the helpful links!

In the 2001 PT Cruiser part catalog it seems to indicate 10mm & 13 mm major diameter.
