No joy at my local Napa store. Said he'd have to order it... I'll try one over in the next town before I try off the Internet.

I had the same problem, and what I did was put a m5X20 it worked fine.

After calling every auto parts store within a 20 mile radius, found one at the NAPA store down in Antioch. I should have asked the price first. Drove 20 miles down there. Kit was $42.00!!! and no drill bit.

Already invested the gas and time, so I just bought it. Had to also trip over to the hardware store to buy the bit (it was probably the ONLY bit I don't already own).

Whole process went fine and I'm back in business.
