Is there anywhere that sells oem hardware for the 7?
I've lost a couple screws into the abyss of the dark cracks below the transmission and shift panel!
Is there any way to get those out easily besides ripping the car apart?
There should be a Fastenal or Auveco dealer near you, they will have the appropraite JIC hardware you need. JIC is the smaller hex- 12mm on an M8 bolt- as opposed to the more standard 13mm on an M8- hex heads on the bolts and nuts. The smaller nuts and bolts will be M6x1.0, the most common size is M8x1.25, and then you have m10x1.25 etc in the larger sizes. Most OEM Mazda nuts and bolts are flanged, but not all.
Ya what's huge and what business is that number for.
And I need the 4 flanged nuts that go on the studs and attach the bottom outer boot. And then the 4 screws that hold the shift boot plate into the top of the center console shift panel
That number is the malloy mazda dealership. Many forum members buy oem parts from them. In my opinion the best place to source your oem parts because of price and customer service. My parts usually come in 2 days and i live across the country.
Go to the nearest 'U-Pull-it" lot, find any 2nd generation Probe and help yourself. Bolts, nuts, screws, fasterners, barrel clips for interior panels, retention clips for hood prop rods, cowl bolt cover plugs....even some connectors. Interior bolts and nuts will be plated and usually in the nicest shape.
The one I went to charged $2 to go in and I filled my pockets.
