JasonA Posted February 11, 2005 Report Share Posted February 11, 2005 I'm going to fix my water pump leak this weekend, and I'm 95% sure I stripped one of the holes in the water pump housing when I last put the cover on...a few years ago. I reused the original rubber seal and stripped one of the bolts, but it still held until now before leaking. And even then, it just leaked a drip overnight, but it's now up to a teaspoon or so, and I'm going to fix it this weekend. Where can I get a Helicoil so small? It's a very small bolt...10mm head I think...even smaller threads. Before I go running all over town tomorrow, can someone give me a heads up on where I need to start? Will a hardwear store have all the thread insert sizes? I realize I may have to get a different size for this one bolt, in case they don't happen to have an insert in the OE size. But the smallest I've seen an insert, that I can remember, is a spark plug repair. Thanks in advance. Jason(2001 STS, White Diamond) "When you turn your car on...does it return the favor?"
