I need a single trans pan bolt. Ford part #N605904-SA. Not sold at AZ/AA/O'Reily. This bolt, in a package of two can be found cheap online($2.50), but then shipping adds $11-$14 to the bill. The Ford dealer wants $8 per bolt. Anyone with an alternative solution here?

Hardware store? Get the threads and some washers.

If you know the length and type (thread pitch, etc) then walk into the Zone and get a bolt. Or go to a local garage and ask for a bolt (giving the exact kind you need (thread pitch, diameter, length.)) Anybody wrenching on cars has a "junk drawer" or bin of some kind with stuff like that in there.

Something like a trans pan bolt does not need to be anything special. As long as it threads in and isnt too long its fine.the dealer would be the last place id look. Id go to osh or home depo first.

They are probably charging you for the pack. The dealer has to order them in quantities of 2, and since it is special order, you are getting the bag of 2. Those bolts are $4.11 each, hence the $8.22 plus tax for 2 bolts.

dimensions are M8 x 1.25 x 19.

LMAO. I can state from personal experience (a long time ago) that this is not a good idea, at least for wheel covers.

You should be able to get any bolt 8x1x1.25 with a flat washer like others said. Most tranny pan bolts have a flange washer and possibly a tooth pattern on the washer. For an OEM bolt, salvage is your best bet.

As mentioned, a generic bolt like a trans pan bolt will be available at any decent hardware store.

Home Depot has a terrible selection of bulk hardware, so skip them. They never have what I need, but my local ACE Hardware generally does have the single nuts/bolts I need.

Take one of the bolts to Lowes or Napa and they will match it.

Go to Lowes or a hardware store, 8x1.25x15mm should work, put a flat washer under it.
