I need to replace the two bolts used to mount the alternator. How can I found out what they are and where to go to get replacements?

Hi, I'm pretty sure they are metric. Go to ace hardware and purchase 1-4 different size/diameter bolts that appear to be the correct diameter for the threaded hole. First thing to do is get the 'threads per inch' in metric. Then the diameter of the bolt in mm. Figure out the length you need and return to Ace to buy the actual bolts needed. Use a small nail or screwdriver to gauge the depth of the threaded hole. Make the new bolt length about 1/4 inch shorter including the alternator bracket depth. Return the others for refund. PS, keep the receipts and you'll probably have to make 2 trips......
