Need help finding bolt for negative battery terminal - 2011 E92

I was installing a new amp and when i went to reattach the negative battery cable, I over-torqued the nut and sheared off the head of the bolt. BMW wants $500 for an entirely new cable assembly. Not sure how exactly to describe it, but all I need is the little bolt that has the kind of "V" shaped base that clamps down the negative terminal when you tighten it. I think you guys know what I mean

Anyone know where I can get that specific part? I found somewhere online that there was a VW part # that worked, I ordered it and the base is a slightly different shape, doesn't work. Thanks for any help!

Sounds like a job for a Dremel tool...

Thanks everyone, it looks exactly like this bolt:


It's not attached to the cable, so no dremel required. If I had the correct bolt, all I need to do is put it in and tighten it down.

I looked at realOEM, there is no separate bolt shown for the IBS/Neg cable. I suggest taking the bolt to the dealer and see what they can do for you.

Sorry for old tread. But did not get to many posts under search that this tip fit in.

BMW only sell the whole negativ cable with the T-bolt included

VW part nr 6X0915138 works like a charm. Just fitted one to my -06 E90
(For a $ extra you get the appropriate nut and washer also.)
