    Im putting my car back together and i seem to lost the ac compressor bolts. Does anybody have any laying around or know if any other fords that use the same bolts?

    None of the hardware stores have the bolts long enough and dealer said no other bolts from other fords would fit.

    I kinda looks like maybe a 97 5.4 ac compressor bolts may fit but im not sure. Also all the junk yards that have sho's are 3 to 4 hours away from me say they only have the compressor no bolts. If anybody could help me out id appreciate it.

    I need all 3 ac compressor bolts. I dont know the length or diameter. The 2 bottom holes are very long cold not find any bolts at the junk yard that were long enough. The top bolt is shorter than the bottom 2. I found a 01 dohc escape ac compressor bolt threaded in the top bolt but seems like its not long enough.

    Looks like the 7mm x 110 will probably fit the bottom 2 but the top one is shorter.

    I have found one long one. I'll look for the shorter one. It goes on the top of the compressor? I have an engine laying around I'm testing one. 75 lbs of bolts.......

    The bolts are actually a 8mm-1.25 thread. The bolt is odd because it has a 7mm shank. I could not find another 110mm one. But have several shorter ones. if you could get the thickness of the compressor boss for the top I could find a bolt to fit there.

    Yes the top one is shorter, if you can't find the top one then i will just use the one i got off the escape but i definitely want that bottom one.

    Dorman 876-695 is a replacement bolt. Amazon and ebay have them for the 110mm one.

    Just incase somebody trys to order these Dorman 876-695, i got them today and they do not fit. The bolts are too big to fit in the holes on the compressor.

    Look like i will be tearing up the garage tomorrow to see if i can find the original bolts:(.

    You should drill out the holes on the compressor body. Should only be a mm you need to remove.
