Go to any auto parts store, find the Dorman HELP! section and they'll be there. Otherwise someone should be able to find them for you. They're like $4 for both.

Do this break easy? Would I be better off trying to see if it didn't set right or just replace it? If I do replace them do I need to take of the whole accessory bracket?

They do get brittle when aged. You will have to remove either the bracket or intake to replace it. Lube the o-rings with rtv when assembling to help the rings seat properly and add an extra layer of leakage protection. Have they been replaced before or are they original. If they are fairly new you should be able to reuse, but they are cheap enough to just put in new.

I'm pretty sure there the orignal ones. The one that goes to the intake is fine. The one that's under thesc nose is finethe one under the tenisor pully is the one that's leaking. I'm guessing I should just replace both. Is it just the 3 bolts that hold the bracket in? After you take the alt and hoese off?
