As any early Z-Car owner can likely confirm, broken studs and bolts are not fun to remove from aluminum parts. One of the best ways to prevent broken bolts is to replace hardware before it breaks during removal. This genuine, original equipment (OEM) bolt is used to hold the Valve Timing Control Solenoids to the Variable Timing Control units. Sold individually; 1 required per solenoid (2 per car).
The VTC Solenoid bolts have a very low torque spec. We recommend installing the bolts by hand first (but only until resistance is felt), then follow the factory torque spec using an inch-pound specific torque wrench. Torque Spec: 85 in-lb.
