Where are folks getting the nut and bolt that hold the idler in place? I have a 2003 H6 3.0 with 160,000 on it and the idler sheared off.

I'm going to buy the Dayco 89007 to replace mine. But when the bearing froze it sheared the bolt and it is gone now.

Thanks in advance for the recommendations! :D

dealer or match it up at the hardware store.

do you also need the washer? i think there's a proper washer also on the idler.

I heard the nut has an odd size across the flats for the size threads, I think someone resorted to grinding down a hardware-store nut to make it fit.

You'd want to use grade-5.

Thanks for the comments guys. I think I will go to the stealership to get the correct part.
