Exclamation 2000 Valve Cover gormment for the bolts????

Where can I buy this? My mechanic friend stopped by and said I should really replace the bolt gormment to the valve cover as this is where it would also leak. But I haven't had any luck on finding it a local pep boys, advanced our autozone.

Anyone?

Hmm... ok do you really think I need to change them? They kinda look good to me.

I would just hate to repeat the job. Right now it's taken apart and waiting for me to get the grommets. (winter car) and a great low maintenance car. DD is a (E55)

Looking at the parts manual online it looks like you have to purchase new bolts and the gromet comes with, $1.89 each

Thank you. I checked the bolts after putting it all together and it doesn't appear to be leaking through the inner bolts. Ill keep an eye on it. If not no biggie Ill grab the bolts at the dealer.

Car has been really reliable in the New England winter months. Purrs like kitten with the new plugs.

140k and going strong.
