Exclamation Help! What Size Bolt Do I Need For Battery Hold Down Clamp???

Hi all,

What size bolt does the Battery Holdown Clamp that holds down the back of the battery use?

I lost that bolt when I removed my battery to clean out the battery and the battery tray. I still have the bolt down black plastic clamp, but the bolt slipped from my fingers and fell "somewhere" in the area below the battery tray. (I am pretty sure the head is 1/2 inch - 13mm, I need to know length and thread please).

Unfortunately it did not fall to the ground.

So please, if you know where I can find out the size and threading of that bolt, PLEASE LET me know ASAP.

Thanks.

One more thing: Do I need the nut as well???

Doesn't the bolt screw into a permanently fixed nut underneath the battery tray???

This from my 2004 and 2005 parts lists:
Hex Head M8 x 1.25 x 55

No nut. The plastic tray has an attached panel nut, IIRC.

Thanks so much for the note. This is a real life saver.

Question: Do they have a washer as well??? That might have fallen through as well so I don't remember if it has a washer or not.

No washer on the stock bolt but it has a shoulder. A small washer won't hurt
