Water Pump Pulley Bolts

Got a little problem hoping someone on here could help me out a bit. Starting last Saturday, I started hearing a small ticking, seeming to be coming from the right hand side of the engine compartment, notably the belt area. Well today the ticks just kept getting louder and I dove back under the hood to see if i could spot it. Thats when I noticed that I only have one bolt holding in the water pump pulley, the other two were completely gone! Well I was wondering if anyone knows the bolt size/thread for these water pump pulley bolts. I just plan to take a walk to a local hardware store to match them up but if someone could let me know, I wouldn't have to take that bolt out. Hopefully someone can chime in, Thanks!

You know I just had to replace one of these same bolts. One was missing and the other two were finger tight causing the pulley to wobble around and make a horrible clanking sound. I "believe" the bolt was an M8 1.25 pitch. Maybe 1/2 or 3/4 of an inch long. I hope this helps. You could drive to the hardware store and just pop off the last bolt and bring it in to match it up.

Use some blue threadlocker when you replace these. I also had the same problem.

Holly bump thread batman!

If you still have 1 bolt, take it to a hardware store and see if they have a bolt same length and thread, often they actually have one that works, might have a different head size, (like 1/2 instead of 14mm or something) but that's okay... A hardware rep will often hook you up with a bolt that works in a few mins... I always try, ACE, napa and advanced auto... One of the three always has a good replacement... most of the time, I get my bolt or nut on my first trip. Will likely cost you $2 to $5...

If you were like me when this happened and you still have all of your bolts, just torque them back down nice and snug!
