I had some difficulty replacing the supercharger belt last time as the tensioner pully torx bolt was in the beginning stages of becoming stripped. Although I got the belt on, I'd like to get a replacement bolt now before I need it later.
I know it is reverse threaded. I called two dealers, and they both told me they don't sell the bolt and that I have to buy the whole tensioner assembly. I read on here that some owners were able to order a bolt, but didn't post the part number
Alternatively, it has been suggested to simply buy a reverse threaded hex bolt at a hardware store. I would rather have the bolt in hand before I try to pull the old one out. I'd like to get one except I don't know how long the bolt is. Does anyone here know? I understand it is a 15mm head.
Any input would be very much appreciated.
