Default What size nut is it

I did try an search for this on the forums, but couldn't find it... I replaced my battery, but I lost the small nut to the metal strip that goes over the top of the battery. Does anyone happen to know what size this is? Thanks! It's a 1999 SL1 sedan.

IIRC, the nut requires a 10 mm socket, and if that is the case, it is an M6 nut.

it is a 10mm socket.

If that doesn't work use a self tapping screw.

As stated, 10mm and has M6 threading.

You can damn near disassemble the whole car with a 10mm socket.

Any basic hardware store will have a metric nut like this for around 10 cents.

And you guys forgot about 13mm/15mm for the engine mounts and AC compressor mount lol.

But you're MacGyver... you don't need sockets: you can do that with a straw, a wad of bubble gum and a used condom.
