Broke my engine coil bolt!

Hi everyone, I am new posting here.

I was just changing my spark plugs in my 2003 Tacoma V6. I was putting the first engine coil back on, and BROKE the bolt. Thank God I was able to get the broken half out of the engine, but I have no clue where I can find a replacement bolt. Any ideas ? It's a 10mm bolt.

Thanks!

Any decent hardware store should have them. I'd buy stainless ones (so it won't rust and looks pretty for a long time)

Okay, I'll check out Home Depot tomorrow.

I tightened that little bastard to 69 FOOT pounds of torque instead of inch pounds haha.

you can get it at any auto parts store, too. BTW-- don't confuse the head size (10mm) with the bolt size. if a bot has a 10mm head, then it's probably a 6mm bolt. take one of the others in with you to make sure you get the right thread pitch, too.

They only cost 1 dollar at home depot. It was M6-1.0x20mm bolts. Thanks for the help guys!
