    Hoping someone knows a bolt size.

    Ok, I have an 89 Accord LX. I was doing an oil change today when I noticed the plastic cover that bolts to the frame right next to the belts was loose. The bolt holding it in place is missing.

    Itís a shot in the dark, but anyone know what size bolt I need for that?

    I can go buy a few different sizes and try and get close if that doesnít work, but thought Iíd try here.

    I have a picture, but canít seem to post it here for some reason.

    Anyways, if anyone happens to know, thanks for the help!

    If its for the plastic splashguard that runs round the underside of the front end, then all the bolts holding it in are the same, not sure on size, 5 or 6mm from memory with fat 10mm heads and fat built in washers. Theyre quite easy to spot if you have a look where the splashguard is mounted and they'll be your best reference.

    It is, but this particular guard seems to cover the belts.

    Going to do a trans drain and fill tomorrow so will see if a nearby bolt will fit.

    8x 1,25 would be my guess.

    I don't know exactly what this bolt is called but it will have a 10 mm head on it. Then it will have an integrated wide washer. Then it has a thicker unthreaded shaft for 3 mm and then the threads will be the same as all the other typical 10 mm bolts in the car.

    If you get any kind of bolt that matches all the other 10 mm socket bolts and just put a big washer on it. it will hold it just fine.

    That was the plan, but I couldnít get them to start.

    Iím going to swing by the auto parts store and see if I can match it up to an existing one.

    Awesome. Thanks a lot. I thought I tried that size, but really need to get it up on ramps to get a better view.

    Re: Hoping someone knows a bolt size.

    Those are a specialty bolt with an integrated washer and a smooth shank spacer specially designed to hold the plastic guard securely without splitting it when you torque down the bolts.



    It's an M6x13 and will be terrifically hard to find. Even if you succeed in finding one, it probably won't do you any good. Those holes see a lot of water, and even in ideal climates the threads rust and fail easily. You might have better luck with a fat, coarse-thread sheet metal screw.
