The Serpentine Tensioner Upper Spring Arm Tension Bolt snapped and I am looking for a replacment.
Can't go to a junkyard casue of work schedule so am hoping someone can point me to someplace I can get one online.
My searches for the bolt have been futile.
Can I just get a Hardened Class 8 Bolt tht will screw into the hole to replace it?
Here is a picture of the Bolt I am looking for:

My credo
Have your pets spayed and neutered
One option is if you can't go to junkyard bc you work everyday then send a buddy or have junkyard pull it and mail it to you.
Good Luck

You can try using a bolt. It might work. You didn't mention what engine you have, so that makes it hard for us to give you any real information. You can enter information about your vehicle in your profile so others can reference that if you have other questions. Anyway, You can buy a new tensioner assembly. Another thing to try is find an auto parts store that has a good selection of Dorman parts. Dorman makes tensioner bolts for some tensioner assemblies, but their catalog isn't very useful for tracking down parts. Take you bold to the auto parts store and see if you can match up the bolt. Also, post a picture of the tensioner assembly. Someone just might know where you can find one.
