Default 3 little ballast screw size?

hello everyone I got new headlights for my Z and it didnít come with the ballast screws. My last headlights had some weird ballast glued to the headlights so it has no screws. What is the thread size on them so I can buy them at work. I really need these 3 screws that hold on the ballast. Thanks guys

When asking for information, kindness might help.

I apologize I didnít mean to be rude. I had short time to reply. But again there is no way for me to send him a picture of the screw. Like I said I donít have any of them. Itís the screws that hold down the ballast

sure thing ... In an weight savings effort, I picked up and gutted a set of donor headlights, saved the lenses, tossed the backsides and I saved (saved, hoarded...debatable) the internals 'juuuuussstttt incase' ... that's why I ask.

but if uploading a picture is too big of a feat than why should I bend over backwards? At the end of the day it's still your problem... GL

Like i said in the last post. I apologize if I sounded rude. I was at work and didnít have a way of doing it. I would just think you wouldnít need a pic of where the ballast screws into. Again sorry

I'm not sure what the size is, but this video may help you and the others in this thread, to see what the three screws look like:


Skip to 3:15, in the video, It shows the screws there.

yes sir. I actually did this before hand. I played in slow motion and they looked like just your normal everyday wood screws. I went to work and bought some and what do you know they worked! I appreciate the help!
