Brake Caliper Bracket Bolt


2014 Model S w/ AP1
May 3, 2019
Northwest Georgia
I need a new Bolt for my Caliper Bracket. And no, I don't want to talk about it LOL. I have a late 2014 Model S AP1.

Does anyone know if there is a similar Make/Model that has a similar size bolt? Obviously, I don't need a "genuine Tesla" brand, but I do want to make sure it fits and is secure.

The parts manual shows "BOLT HF M12x1.75x45 [8.8]-ZnFl". I'm not finding an exact match. Any particular material it needs to be?
Is it this one? If so you will probably have to have a Tesla service center order one. Hopefully I will be at the service center in Pensacola next week if my parts come in and I will see if they have or can get. Seems extra hard to source in USA. Will PM you if I can find. Brake bolts are made from very hard steel for obvious reasons.
