Was it a screw or a bolt? If it was a bolt, then take the other out, go to a hardware store and find a matching peice. I went out and bought 6 brand new bolts, 12 lock washers and 6 nuts when I installed my used TBE. The total was under $3 for everything.

Not sure, I just went to the local hardware store. I have a feeling they were though.

Exhaust system bolts break all the time. Was it rusted or fused in? The heat + corrosion can fuse the bolts.

Usually, you can get a replacement set from an auto parts store for a couple bucks. I know at the dealer, you'll pay $5 for each one, and it's the same stuff.

Are they the bolts that have the spring?

I have a couple of them, don't go to the dealership. PM me your name and address and I'll hook you up.

Later.

My car is well, it's like 10 lbs of shit in a 5 lb bag...
