Muffler Flange Bolt

I have a 2006 Camry. It needs a new muffler. My friend who is a retired mechanic said he can do the installation if I can get him the parts. Partsavatar.ca has all the parts (muffler, gaskets) but does not carry the flange bolts. How do I get the part number of the bolt? Or how do I get the size. Rockauto diagrams does not show the bolts
Thank you all

Any stainless steel bolt of the right size will do if you have the specs. Either a Toyota forum or hopefully someone here knows off the top of their head.
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

I searched toyotanation forum but no luck. Also did a google search and toyotaparts search.

My research shows that HD bolts may not be good for use in this application - in any case I do need the size before I go into HD _ HD will not provide the size.

Buy a bunch of M10, M12 X 1.25 five centimeters length, washers, and split washers. Whatever you do not use just return them. For your information home depot sells stainless hardware. So I do not get your research unless you need 10.9 grade stuff.

Someone bought a mild steel, unplatted bolt at Home Depot and used it in an exhaust application. Then complained online when it failed.

The article I read - cannot find link - said 10.9 is best but 8.8 class or even 8 class is OK to use - I did not check if HD has this grade

Almost every hardware store carries 8.8 grade.

just buy the bolt at the dealer, probally reasonable priced

call and ask

I'm surprised the Dealer's service center could not tell you what and how much the bolt is. They may not specialize in mufflers but should no doubt be able to tell you about the part.

As an example, I had to replace my axle back muffler and I broke a flange bolt when removing the muffler. I dropped by my Dealership, told them the part I needed, they looked it up on their system (they have a large diagram that expands to show all parts) and provided me what I needed. Took about 5 min for the lookup.

They just don't want to help you. You should ask them "so your Toyota dealership would be unable to fix my exhaust if I brought it in?".
If you want to buy from them, trying walking in to their service counter.

Call me crazy but I would just walk into any muffler shop that starts with an M and buy myself the bolts and then carry on.... If they ask what you want them for. Try well I have this skeet trap and funnily enough the bolts for it are the exact same as the ones for your make and model....

Now that I think about it why do most muffler shops start with M. Like Midas, Mufflerman and Meineke?
