This is the bottom mounting bolt for the alternator on the miata. Here I thought it was gonna be an easy out with the old and in with the new. But this bolt is FUBAR so I gotta wait on more parts to get the miata back on the road. I had the old one out in 20 minutes and spent an hour struggling with a bolt that would not go in. Now at least I know why it wouldn’t go in..
For reference of one that isn’t broken see here:
Good thing I like this car.
