I was opening the cover on my 6pg the other day when the head of one of the case screws fell off. I have looked at Home Depot and the local Hardware stores, but I can't find the same screw. If someone has an extra sitting around I would be greatful.


Thank you

I just replaced them with one size over self tapping screws. They only need to hold the cover shut.

They are Phillips oval head machine screws, full thread, 90 degree countersunk, M4 X 22mm. I specialy ordered two dozen from a local industrial fastener and supply house. Cost me about $4. and had to wait two days, but they are the EXACT screw. MAKE sure you keep the little plastic keeper from the busted screw. I've drilled these out and retapped those case holes a dozen times. Boy are they finnicky.

2 places in the Detroit area that I will vouch for when it comes to fastners


C&J fastner on 5mile west of telegraph...almost everything

Metrics Unlimited cant remember exactly off the top of my head up by GM tech center .... they got everything metric and then stuff you figured you would never be able to find


I am sure there are a few others but those 2 always have what I need
