good luck. it's likely going to be a dealer only item. i had a cam bolt from my bike that was M12x1.25 65mm and i called every bolt shop in town. they all laughed when i said M12x1.25 for that diameter that's a super fine pitch.

What is it for? What kind of head?

Front transmission cross member.. Stupid bolt is a fine pitch so I kept backing it out until I could feel where it jumped so I would know when to start screwing in the bolt..

Long story short it cross threaded and snapped the welded bolt in the car body, so I gotta cut a hole to get the nut off..

I know the dealer is going to want like $10-15 for the bolt but that still leaves me with a snapped nut in the body.

Any possible way to just completely redo it with a different more common bolt?

Maybe.. the bolt that comes out of it is a Metric 10.9 which is equivalent to Grade 8.

Getting the old broken one out will prove problematic to say the least.

Is it a located nut or is it welded in place ?

Do you have a lift or are you working on the ground ?

What is in your tool box ?

The closest they have is M12-1.25 x 20mm DIN 961 Class 10.9 Zinc Cap Screw for $2.63 -- which may or may not fit, but it shouldn't bed too hard to grind down 3 mm in case it's too long.

reply to Coma

you are making it seem harder then it is.

All I have to do is drive the car up on ramps, cut a flap inside over the bolt & nut, Hold the nut in place with something, grab my air impact wrench and take it out..

Then do it the other way around.

It would be easier to shim it up with flat washers.

I used to work flat rate and know all the things that can go wrong but that was back in the 80's.

it's just a stupid fine pitch in which they call for something like 103 Ft-lbs on the bolt..

I think it cross-threaded because me trying to hold one side of the transmission up that was resting on the cross member and trying to make sure the bolt is backed out right so it would not cross tread in.

However I'm not the first this has happened to so I don't feel so bad.

It's a 40 mm bolt so this one here should do.

»www.mcmaster.com/#metric-class-1···/=iofinb

last one on the page.. before I order I'm sure nether Lowes or Home depot would have this type of bolt right?

I don't need 50 of them :P

Opps this might be a better buy

Are you sure the pitch is 1.25mm? All of the M12 hardware I'm finding, including on your later post is 1.75 pitch. I'm confused.

You'll never know until you go to either one, I think Home depot will have a better supply of bolts on hand!

it is 1.25mm in pitch

I have to check the bolt again in person I hope it shows the grade marking on it because a grade 10.9 looked a bit thin too.

Why not just get a slightly larger, easy to find bolt and tap the nut for the new size and thread pitch?

Thats' a built in lockwasher you can replace that type of bolt with a standard bolt plus a standard lockwasher.
