Anyone know the part number for the bolt that goes right here? Or does anyone have a spare they’d be willing to sell to me?
@phillofoc, you were very close. That bolt is actually W500215-S309 avaiable at Tasca for $2.81. As for the grommet, I'm afraid it is not released as an end item. The only way to buy from Ford is to the buy the whole air inlet assembly G1FZ-9C623-A ($120.90 at Tasca). Don't shoot the messenger.I didn't see this before. Maybe check your undertray?
You probably stripped the threads (ask me how I know). You'll probably need one of these:
I'm 95% sure this is the bolt: https://www.tascaparts.com/oem-parts/ford-ford-c-max-console-6-x-20-bolt-w500214s437/?c=Zz1lbWlzc2lvbi1zeXN0ZW0mcz1lbWlzc2lvbi1jb21wb25lbnRzJmk9TVgxMTAzMDUmcj0xMyZhPWZvcmQmbz1mb2N1cyZ5PTIwMTcmdD1ycyZlPTItM2wtbDQtZ2Fz. The bolt is 25mm long, but the threads are only 20mm (per the description). I don't know if that intake has a grommet or spacer in it. If so, you might want a shorter bolt.
I've been looking for a replacement for the rubber grommet as mine is torn but I can't seem to find one on Tasca (want to sell me yours?).
You're probably better off getting something shorter from the hardware store after you helicoil the bolt hole. The aluminum there is super soft, I barely pulled the trigger of my drill and the hole was already drilled out if you're going to go the helicoil route. The part that you're drilling into is the cam retainer, so you can't really take it off the car to put it in a drill press like you should be doing and don't drill too deep.
