You can buy the full parts catalogue in electronic form from ebay or the toyota tech site will allow you access on a paid basis, but paying Toyota for a single bolt is dubious when it's not something where tensile strength or specific engineering characteristics are required. Take one off and visit an ironmongers, be prepared to walk away with a handful of them for not much more than Toyota likely want for one, but in fairness if one has given up, it's likely the others aren't far behind anyway.

I know buying a bolt from T is a financial suicide. Did not know parts catalog were available; had the impression it was a closely guarded secret to put people off maintainig their car themselves!🙁

ger: that is an excellent link; already put to test:thumbsup:

You can use http://japan-parts.eu 

Once you locate part number, click on it, and it will send inquiries and you get some quotes on part prices back.

Never personally used it to buy stuff, so i don't know how long you need to wait before you get reply from them.

Its more likely to be something a manufacturer doesn't need to do in terms of cost effectiveness. They already have parts databases for their dealers, so why produce something else which needs to be updated, etc, etc.
