    For all diyers, especially those of u(like me) who snapped a bolt top while putting valve cover back on after doing valve clearances or just changing the rocker cover seal..:mechanic::Foolish:
    Just sharing info, as i had hard time finding the correct part, after buying one wrong bolt:Sobbing: and then buying the correct one..

    There are six stud bolts in total that hold the rocker cover down, 5 of which are the same size and length and one of them being different in length as it sits slightly higher than the rest 5. Capture1.JPG
    its part number 8(PFKL975476, BOLT A, HEAD COVER) and part number 9(PFKL975643, BOLT B, HEAD COVER) from lings website.
    Part number 8(Bolt A) is the shorter one and part number 9(Bolt B) is the longer one and is positioned here:

    Hence is slightly longer than the other ones.

    FYI the one i snapped

    It will be a minefield of information and TBH so many MTOC have different twists to part numbers it will confuse people, the best way is to look by VIN so you get the correct part for your car.

    If you know the correct Honda part numbers @hsyasin please correct your original post and replace the PFKL numbers.

    So have you fitted them all (and did this go OK)?

    Much easier with a manual, isn't it!
