I believe it is really just a bolt. If I remember right, it probably has a shoulder on it so that you can't over tighten the retaining nut.
Funny thing is that it had to be on the road right where it happened, so you probably stopped only a hundred feet away from it.
But at the dealer, they will show you an exploded diagram and you will only have to point to it.
Your description is all they need to get to the right diagram.

Gear knocks when shifting

please do say ,exaclty what knocks.
is this heard or felt or both.
is the sound inside car or outside,
there are 3000 parts in newer cars.
so direction to noise is complex , to the extreme

my guess, is car has a M/T tranny , a STICK, say so.....
and you are shifting and you mean the gears grind?
knocks , is something engines do ....
so you shift and all gears work? no not
you can shift up or down, so do all gears work or just 1 fails
and if fails tell use what you were doing.
driving on the road.?
or backing out of the driveway?
give is CONTEXT. tell what you did, and what car did wrong.

91 honda accord manual transmission was driving down highway and heard a loud noise pulled over now wont shift into gear

You may have stripped the clutch disc. This can happen when the clutch gets old and worn or if it has been abused by rough use. When the disc strips, there is no friction between the clutch disc and the pressure plate so the vehicle acts like its in neutral.

2000 civic wont drive

Sounds to me that you might have lost your pressure plate or the throw out bearing. The only way to check is to pull your trans out and see if the presure plate is broke or the throw out bearing id gone. Sorry no quick fix on this one. It;s not a bad job to change the clutch assem. but it is time consuming.
