Default Where can I get new upper intake bolts?

Hi,

I've had my 2006 PT Cruiser wagon (base model, manual, 2.4L, no A/C) for about a year now... and have been lurking around here for about that amount of time.

I was recently doing some service where I removed the intake and lifted it out of the way.

When I put the intake back on and torqued up the bolts, one of them broke (%^$@#@#%!!!) on me before I even exceeded 10LBs of torque.

Getting the bottom part of the bolt out doesn't look like it will be hard since enough of it is sticking up that I should be able to get it out with Vice Grips.

But before I do that, I want to get a set of new bolts.

Problem is... when I search for "PT cruiser Intake Manifold bolts" (or variations of it), I can't find them. Checked Rockauto, Canadian tire, amazon, ebay... Haven't gone to a dealer yet.

Can I only get these at the dealer or does someone here know of an online parts store that has them?

I figure I could also get them from a scrap yard... but I'd rather get new ones since I believe using old bolts increases the chances of having one snap on me again the next time I need to do some kind of service.

Thanks!

Depending where you live, I have had great luck/prices with Lordco. But I am in Canada and the local Chrysler has stupid hours.... Also, so far my bolts have been free, but I am always getting other things.
So, maybe try your local shop and see what happens.

I'd just go to the dealer, or a good auto parts store with an old bolt to match the thread/bolt pattern and strength.

BTW: The bolts call of 105 INCH-pounds for tightness. That's ONLY 8.75 FOOT- pounds. NOT very much. Don't blame the bolts.

SCREW. Intake Manifold Attaching, Mounting. Hex Flange Head. M8x1.25x32. CHRYSLER PACIFICA # 06504171, 06101321, 06503834

Same part... half the cost, half the shipping charge.

Question Re: Where can I get new upper intake bolts?

If you have an auto parts store nearby you can find them alot cheaper,and NO shipping charges;Just tell them the specs: 'Hex Flange Head Bolt (M8X1.25X43.0)'....They'll hook you up!(Heck,I've even had my local NAPA give me a bolt or nut for FREE!.....Question: "How much do I owe you?" Answer: "Aww,don't worry about it.")
