    Looking for the bolts that hold the driver's side oh sh*t handle to the A pillar. Would take the complete handle assembly but really just need the bolts. I broke one off in the pillar. Any ideas on where to find one?

    I went to Ace hardware and found some grade 10.9 bolts that were the same thread pitch and close to the same length. Just go in there with one of your in-tact bolts and check the bolt thread checker thing to verify what size bolt it is.

    Same thing happened to me and I haven't gotten around the extracting the broken part out yet.

    You be surprised how many other compatible bolts and stuff Ace has. Just make sure you get the grade 10.9 stuff (about equal to grade 8 but in metric form) especially for something like that

    Good idea @thunderone. I've got an Ace Hardware close by. Thanks!
