    So this week my brake caliper decided to come out of place while driving home from class, I pulled the wheel of the see what caused it to happen and sure enough, one of the brake caliper mounting bolts was missing. I called the dealership to see if they had any in stock which they didnt and they said that bolt would cost me $18 to replace, so now i plan on just going to my local hardware store to find one. Does anybody know the correct size/pitch of those bolts?

    I would get them to replace it... Then tighten it myself... Then never go back there!

    well i had to order one online, it just sucks because i wont have a car for another week. I tried to take out the other one to size match but they where to tight and most my tools are in san diego. I didnt want to take it back there because I would have to have it towed there and last time i had it there they were replacing a pin for my brake pads that they forgot to put back the first time i had it there. So I would rather save my time and do it myself.
