I painted my valve cover a little while ago and when I was putting it back together I accidentally torked one of the spark plug tube bolts that goes through the spark plug cover then holds the spark plug cover on with an acorn nut. But I found the bolt a while ago and then I lost it and can't find it again. Does anyone know where I can get a new bolt? :sadbanana:

You can usually find a suitable replacement at Lowes/Home Depot or a hardware store. BUTTT...if you want an OEM one that looks right and frs perfectly, hit up a dealer. If you're nice, you might be able to have someone ask the techs and see if anyone has a spare, if not a brand new one shouldn't run you too much. I'm not 100% sure which bolt you need or I could give you a price.

yea they had a 10mm bolt that I used to hold down the spark plug tube so it didn't bounce around but I painted the acron nuts that hold down the cover red too and right now I only have three in stead of four. I think I will have to go to honda but when I called them they told me it would be a special order and it would run me $13. for a two inch threaded bolt. I about :bricks:

Lol it happens man. The dealership can't control it unfortunately. And they aren't a commonly needed part from my experience so most places won't stick them, or stock many if they do. Have you check around and some aftermarket bolts/nuts? You might be able to pick up a nice anodized set for a little more than the single stock one.

did you find the bolt you are looking for? Today I was trying to change the spark plugs on my 07 EX and accidentally over-torqued one of the nuts that hold the spark plug cover. Now I am driving with the broken nut..... car drives fine but do not want to wait until it stops....any suggestions?

What is that part called? I did the same thing. I tighten it to much and it broke. I know it can be replaced but i do not know what it is called.

I just changed out my spark plugs last night in my 2006 Honda Civic and while i was finishing up i accidentally over torqued (VERY easy to do) the nut that holds the spark plug cover/ engine coil cover down. I've been searching all over trying to find the parts to fix this and I think I've found them.


Honda online store : 2006 civic plug hole coil - plug (1.8l) parts
nut /acorn nut on the bolt for the plug coil cover #4 Honda Part: nut, hex. cap (6mm) Part Number: 90207-RAA-A00 Standard Qty.: 004


Honda online store : 2006 civic spool valve (1.8l) parts
bolt for spark plug coil. #4 Honda Part: bolt, spark plug coil Part Number: 12216-RNA-A00 Standard Qty.: 004



My only concern while fixing this myself will be taking off the old bolt/stud. It looks like it should just unscrew but I'm afraid its rusted on and dont want to do any more damage taking it off. My plan was to just spray it with some wd40/pb blaster to hopefully losen it up making sure to NOT GET ANY close to the plug cover or plug hole at all.
The dealership i ordered the parts from for roughly $5 sent me to the service department where i explained the part to be replaced. They said it would be an hour+ of labor costing $140+. That seems a bit ridiculous to just replace a bolt that should screw on and off. So I was just going to do this myself.

Has anyone else out there had experience doing this or done the same thing? From some google searches it seemed like quite a few people had done it on forums but the forums didnt get much farther than suggesting the part (which i have).

Don't worry,just do it.I have done it.My car was 2007 Civic EX.I used to worry about whether there is something inside the engine.It proved to be very simple.14mm deep socket,a little presure,a little torque,counter-clock unscrew.Before that I gave some WD-40,but I feel you may not need it.And!The honda 4s tried to cheat me!They even sold me the gasket which hinted that I should open the engine.Bad guyes!
