    Valve Cover Screw Options

    Hey all,

    I'm new to this forum, although it has helped me in the past.

    I own a 2007 Saab 9-3 2.8L V6 Aero, and have completed the replacement of both valve cover gaskets yesterday, but in the process I broke one of the valve cover screws (there are 13/14 or so for each in total). It seems like these have been discontinued by SAAB, so I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on what to replace it with. Right now I have left the open thread on the front valve cover, on one of the four screws closest to the front side. I left it on the slot farthest away from the timing belt side.

    While I'm at it, I'm also looking to get some of those screws that attach the metal support that attaches to the top back of the top intake manifold. I'm assuming they're similar to the ones that attach the ECU support to the back of the intake manifold, though I'm not sure. Apparently lost one of them while disassembling

    Any help is highly appreciated!

    They will be standard metric so remove one measure diameter and length of the thread and buy the same size allen headed bolts.
