Need help identifying screws, two screws on left part of outer shell

Hi all,

I need help identifying two screws.

They are similar to the screws referenced in this step: MacBook Core 2 Duo Optical Drive Replacement

"It is not necessary to remove the similar screws on the other side of the computer"

Thing is, I removed these screws and lost them. Hoping someone can identify them for me, and if possible, show me where to buy replacements. Thanks.

Is this a good question?

Can you give us the last three digits of your serial number? that way we can properly identify your computer and can make sure that we give you the right information.

James Bouwens, got to love Apple "Important: Notice the two screws at the left side of the computer. Although they can be removed, they exist for cosmetic purposes only and do not require removal. If they are removed, however, be sure to reinstall the two identical 3-mm long shoulder screws at the corner near the ports. Do not use longer screws." So a quick Google search for cosmetic screws should help you find the ones you need. Hope this helps, good luck.
