Changed the oil on my buddies 2011 Chevy a half hour ago, I noticed one of the "grooves" where one of the mounting bolts go for the air box lid is cracked, and the bolt is gone, torx head bolt. I'm assuming the lid for any 1999-2013 4.8 5.3 or 6.0 Vortec would work. Does anyone have one for sale or know where one can be bought along with the correct bolt besides the dealer?

See if there is a Pullapart.com salvage yard near you. Very well organized, good prices, and you do all of the pulling! Otherwise, any salvage yard, ebay, etc may have what you may need.

My guess would be an auto scrap yard. I got some hardware for an '04 Neon airbox at the local junkyard last summer.

My wifes cracked at the same spot on her 04 Tahoe. Local junkyard had it for $20 and it had the restriction gauge. Her original did not.

ours broke because they didnt get the screw all the way unscrewed before trying to rip the cover off.
