Anyone know where these bolts might be from?

    I just got my truck back from the dealer this afternoon. They had to replace a cracked timing cover with 600 miles on the truck. I found these 2 large torx head bolts laying on the cowl below the windshield a little while ago. Any guesses where they might belong?

    @FordTechOne maybe??

    Intake sensors? I'd be pissed.

    Believe me, I'm not happy!! Service is closed Saturday too. I was just doing a look see in the engine bay to see if it was cleaned up, and I found them.

    Man, first your extended wait and now this... they better be giving you some free parts or something because doesn't sound like you'd want any more service taken care of through them, jeez. Feel for ya Uncle Perv!

    Those two bolts hold the engine in place... nothing to worry about, Oldfart.

    In all seriousness, let’s hope that those were not needed, because whatever new part(s) they installed, came with new ones.

    I'm REALLY hoping for the same answer, that maybe there was a part involved that had recommended single use bolts and it has new ones in it. I've only ever heard of that for heads, but who knows. It's a pretty unusual fastener with the torx head and the way the tip of it is designed.

    Gilboy's in Whitehall.
