Rear tire pressure sensor bolt broken

At some point my rear TPS bolt has broken off and has been floating around in the tire. Has been working fine but not keen on it floating around! Apparently you can't just buy the bolt. Anyone have this happen in the past and sourced a bolt from somewhere? Might have to go to my local engineering firm and get them to make one if all else fails. Thanks brains trust!

Re: Rear tire pressure sensor bolt broken

P/N 36238521833, "pin" they call it, is available separately. Probably broken at the last tire change. My local shop keeps these in stock.

Re: Rear tire pressure sensor bolt broken

I have shit-tins of K1300 bits in a giant plastic tub, and lots and lots a bolts and screws and bits. There is a good chance I have one of these bolts, or a even an entire sensor. I will have a look, post up a picture of what you need, and maybe some measurements, if I have it I will pop it in the post to you.

Re: Rear tire pressure sensor bolt broken

Thanks KiwiMat and Beech, that's the one in the picture.. It's an 8mm hollow aluminium bolt with a torx head. I've ordered one but it'll be about 2 weeks as it's on back order from the Motherland. $28.50 AUD delivered, thanks very much!
