Default slight problem!

okay so i was taking long overdue pictures of my headlights and my new intake and i noticed that a bolt had oil around it, a bolt holding down the valve cover, the one right next to the oil filler cap. Turns out its not only loose, its broke! and the bottom of the bolt is still stuck in the head of my engine! But its not a huge deal, i just need to get one ordered but i cant find that bolt anywhere. Its a 1996 honda civic EX with a SOHC vtec d16y8 motor. Just point me to where i can buy it guys, for now ill drive my truck!

Thanks, Eric.

check out your local autoparts store, I was in a local place a few weeks ago to order just one bolt.

The dealership can get you one. You can fix it yourself if you have every used easy outs and things like that. Otherwise Honda can remove the broken piece too.
