Headlight assembly bolts

Went to replace my burnt out high beam bulbs and I think a previous owner lost the mounting bolts for both the driver and passenger side headlight assemblies.

My owners manual says that the bolts are 7mm and pretty long but mine had 10mm bolts, about an inch long, on the outboard side of both assemblies. The inboard bolts are 8mm, also about an inch long, one of which was not even connected since the mounting hole on the passenger side assembly was broken off.

So I am wondering if anyone has a part number for the original bolts?

Here are the Chrysler 2nd gen. parts pdf's: 2nd Gen Parts Catalog

Could search by the number for your actual year, but the numbers did change, and they are interchangeable among all years, so also should check by '04 part number since some lookups may only show last number superseded to, though the better lookups will recognize any of the numbers.

Might check with a dealer, but may be discontinued. I don't find it on eBay by the Chrysler number. If you search Rock Auto, it shows it, though the description says it's a cylinder head bolt, so may or may not be it. It might be something you'll need to get out of a junk yard - could come out of any 2nd gen. LH car.

FYI, when searching by Chrysler part numbers anywhere, leave off any leading zeroes and spaces within the number. Just to make sure, you could search by both with and without the leading zeroes, but most searches on Chrysler dealer sites, eBay, or aftermarket will not recognize the number with the leading zero.

Sounds like you need to replace or repair your passenger side headlamp. Aiming and "steadiness" of the headlights depends on those bolts fitting right and being tight. The plastic threads in the top of the headlamp assemblies must also be good (not stripped out) for the bolt to pull the assembly up tight against the upper radiator support. The headlight alignment is dependent on that.

Also, whenever you ask questions here, you should give model, year, and engine. To save yourself having to do that each time, you could include that in you profile or signature.

Thank you, I plan on buying some new headlights as soon as I can. It looks like I can get the right mounting screws fairly easily now that I found the part number (06505760AA).

Changed my sig as you suggested, thanks

I plan on making a run to the salvage yard on payday, was there not long ago helping a friend get 1970 VW Bug parts, and I saw quite a few Intrepids. I am just going to grabs as many misc nuts, bolts, screws, and whatever else catches my eye.
