When changing out the battery on my 2015 Sonata Sport I loosened the wrong nut and of course it dropped down below. I've tried taking the bottom panels off, kind of banging them to figure out where it was. It's just gone somewhere. I am not able to find the specs anywhere for the nut. I think it's 10 or 12 mm, but I don't know the thread spec. All the dealer could find was to sell me a new battery cable. It's probably $0.20 at the hardware store if I knew what size. Any ideas?

For .20 cents you could buy a few to test then keep or return the rest.

I hate how the earth swallows small dropped items never to be found by human eyes.

Hyundai cars usually use metric fasteners. 10mm across the flats of the nut would be an M6 x 1.0 thread. 12mm would be an M8 x 1.25

If I helped you fix it, why not...

Your support is greatly appreciated

It turns out that the replacement nut I purchased at a True Value store was 13 mm. But the M8 was correc.
An M8 nut/bolt would need a 13mm wrench if it was fitted to a European car, but it's a 12mm on cars from SE Asia.
