i'm in the same boat - was gonna pop by home depot tomorrow and match up with one of my other heat shield bolts. but if somebody knows, it'll save me a good 5 minutes of looking :)

If you call a nissan dealer and tell them which bolts you are talking about they can look up the bolt size, thread, length for you.

Why do you need the header heat shield anyway?
not quite. i wanted just the brake bolt with the hole in it to put into the caliper, and nissan diddnt give me any information. 5 bucks for that damn screw.

chevy or ford would give you the information and everything.

well, i wouldnt see any point on being an *******, as my family goes to this dealership whenever we need something. hell, they know me by name. its just not told by nissan fast or anything. just a part number and thats it.

oh and my heat shield is starting to rattle like crazy too. anything wrong with just taking it off?

Nissan doesn't spend money putting stuff on there that isn't necessary. Removing heat shields raise the temp of the engine compartment which shortens life of rubber and electronic components.

Call and see if your auto parts store has the little "key ring looking thing" of thread sizes. it has every thread pattern on it with the size labled on it, they will usually let you take that out to the car to match it up.

well of course they're not going to have a hundreds of boxes sitting in the backroom full of all the different sized screws and bolts that are in our car, they are going to have to special order them, its really not that big of a deal, just takes maybe a week or two, your really just wasting your time that heatshield is just so dumb people dont try to touch the header
