Default Help identify bolt during clutch job.

When I removed all the bolts I kept them separated and marked. This bolt was with all the bell housing and front tq tube bolts. I just installed the tq tube today and it’s the only bolt left. The bolt was on the floor so it leads me to believe I removed it while working under the car. It does not have orange paint marker on the head like all the other engine bolts. The bolt is 10mmx1.5 and has a 13mm head.
Thanks in advance

Looks like a bellhousing bolt, with the wiring harness at the back of the engine sometimes it gets in the way and you miss one of them.

Pressure plate bolt. Did you use new ones and new flywheel bolts?

Ive gone over the bellhousing bolts a few times. All 8 are there. The head on this bolt is flat and all the bellhousing bolts had a rounded head.
Thanks for the suggestion

this could be the bolt that attaches one of the O2 sensors. Wondering if you took that off during disassembly?

Figured it out. It’s one of my front sway bar bolts. I must have knocked it under the car near the bolts for the bell housing.
Thanks for all the suggestions.
