    Hello everyone I have a quick question. I was in the process of replacing my belts in my 98 Tacoma 4.7l 4x4 and while loosening the tension bolt for the first belt the bolt broke off midway. I got the rest of it out of the hole but now I need to replace it. Does anyone know where I could get one? I never find Toyotas at junkyards. :(

    It is for the belt that powers the power steering pump I believe. it is the 14mm bolt

    Of course all the hardware stores I checked today did not have an m8-1.25 bolt that was long enough so I guess I will have to search harder and check more places. :(
