I was planning on re-using the bolt for the new CPS too as I bought mine online and only got the o-ring and cps no bolt but I think I'll get a new one because the head looks like its getting chewed up and I haven't even gotten it out! Does anyone have the part number for this?
Mine was stripped and I had to chip away some of the plastic off of the old sensor to be able to get vice grips on it, maybe it'll work for u too.
