    Ok ...so I'm replacing the condenser and accumulator .... Easy Peasy.....right? Right! Until you snap off 3 bolts. Not a problem, got them out...but have to replace them. WHERE IN THE HELL DO YOU GET METRIC BOLTS? Sure ...the dealer right? Naw...12 miles away...one way. Any ideas on where to purchase? Not one or two...maybe like 3 or 4 each for future repairs? 10's, 12's 14's even 8's all different lengths. It's a 2003, things will break. Lol! Any help is always appreciated! Thanks!

    I just bought some metric bolts at Lowe's. Hopefully that's closer than 12 miles one way to a dealer?

    I checked Lowes and Home Depot but not the size I needed, or I should say.... The length I needed. Now it could be just "my store" in lovely Perrysburg Ohio that does not carry a good supply.

    We use 100% metric everything on the machines we build, I've had to go find bolts on many occasions. Best success rate @ Fastenal. Ace Hardware has always been second, but it's hard to find stainless or zinc coated there, mostly they have the black anodized or ionized or whatever it is, and that crap rusts fast.

    Hold the Line! If you are not holding the line, abandon your ship. Destruction is inevitable without more to hold the line!
    I second Ace Hardware. Also, Lowes, at least the one in my area has a pretty good assortment of various types of hardware (Bolts, Nuts, fasteners, etc...).
    Then if you can wait... Amazon or just google the bolts and what they go to on the truck. In example, "AC condenser bolts for a 2003 Toyota Tundra". You are bound to find some websites with em...
