Lost bottom screws and clearance after repair

After I swapped my touchscreen and the rear panel I lost the screws for the bottom of the iPhone. Now I want to buy some knew ones and need to know the exact specifications. I also have problems with the clearance between the rear panel and the metal frame, which might be due to the absents of the screws. Has somebody some experiences with that. I fear that I bought some low quality rear panel.

Hi chrisp,

I recommend buying a set of new screws. You get them here for under $2.

The clearance issue might be related to the missing screw(s). However, I would double check (and partially disassemble the phone again) what the real issue is. And when the new screw set arrives, I would give it another try.
