    Size of bolts holding on bypass valve?

    So long story short, one of the holes in the IC is stripped a bit (bolt bites in but cant get it to the torque spec without going loose again) me being neurotic about stuff like that I am trying to figure out how to fix it (without buying a new IC) I was thinking of doing a thread repair but I can't find anywhere (on any suby forum) the part# or size of the particular bolt.

    Furthermore -Is that a bad idea? Am I better off getting a stock IC or could this safely be done?

    Heres a part diagram with the part I need circled I have narrowed down that the bolt is either A6087 or A70826 which are both listed as "Bolt" but as you can see there is no arrow pointing to which is which. Thanks for any help you can provide. (yes I searched here but I didn't find anything, sorry if this is a double post)

    The P/N for the BPV mounting bolts at a Subaru dealer is 800608700 and they cost about $1.28 ea. If you order on a Tues or Thur they can have them in 3+ days, Subaru parts normally only order on Tues and Thur. Not sure if you could use a heli-coil, but that may be something to look into.

    Hope I helped a little bit!

    it's M7 or M8 x 1.5 I do believe, like 20mm long??

    At any rate, yes, you can heli-coil it for repairs. I recommend removing, so that all metal shavings can be removed, once you've fixed the threading.

    Can't find any M7orM8 x1.5 - smallest x1.5 I found so far was M10. Although lots of M7orM8 x1.25.

    Any idea where I can find the ones you mentioned?

    it may be a 1.25.. I can't remember exactly, and since I no longer have a tmic, i can't check it for you

    take your bolt to the hardware store, and they can tell you size/pitch you need for it.

    M8x1.25 - Don't know about length but thats the exact size and the thread repair kit was easily located at Autozone - thanks for the help. Was easy as could be took an hour cuz it was a pain getting the IC in and out but other than that very straight forward.
