broken banjo bolt...

i replaced the calipers on the front of my jeep, but when i got it all back together the driver's side was leaking a little bit at the banjo bolt. i tried to tighten up a little more and the damn bolt broke right off. i was able to get it out of the caliper, but i need to find another one. anybody know where to get one? is this a dealer only part?

Most real parts store still stock these. By real I mean the old shop that looks like it's been there since the early 1900s. If you still can't find one I'll be going through Cincinnati in a few days on my way to Texas and I can meet you somewhere with one. Send me a PM and I'll give you my cell number to contact me.

Dealer part number is 6035911AA. List price only $1.75

I'm not exactly sure where you are, but these two dealers in the Cinci area show it in stock

I just checked Advance Auto Parts website they have a bolt from Dorman for 17.99 plus shipping. The part number is 484206. I would also take the copper crush washers and hang them from a piece of wire and heat them with something till they are red then dunk them in water to cool them down. what this does in anneal them so they will seal better. We have been doing this for years now and have never had a leak.

$17.99 are you kidding??? That's more than 10x dealer price!

Agreed you should replace both crush washers too. Dealer p/n J3237672 on those.

thanks for the help... i just called the local dealer (KIDD), but they don't have any. the crush washers were brand new that i installed, not sure why they were leaking... they were much thicker than the washers that were on the old calipers though.

I know that. I'm a little shocked myself at the price. That was taken directly off their website. I will say this though. Sometimes the dealer is cheaper on parts then other places. I got synchros for my brothers TJ for 15 dollars cheaper from the dealer than from 4WD.com. Hows that for a shock.

As to the crush washers anytime I deal with copper crush washers I anneal them. Doesn't matter if they are new or not. The copper gets work hardened when they stamp it out as they are being made. Annealing them softens them back up where they will seal right.

You can use the flame from your stove in the house if you have a gas stove. (don't let your wife or girlfriend catch you doing this) Just take a wire coat hanger and hang the washers on it then hold them in the flame till they turn red then dunk them in some water. You can tell the difference because before you soften them they are hard to bend after softening them you can bend them with your fingers.

I had a hard time finding them too. Autozone, Advanced Auto Parts and Oreilys didnt have the correct size availible. I only found them at a NAPA store. They dont come up in ther computer as being specific to jeeps so just ask for 3/8 -24 banjo bolts. I think they were like 3 dollars a piece.
