Which of these screws R used 4 speakerassembly? Same size usd elsewhr?

Could someone please point out the screws in this pic of a pac of all the screws sold for the 4S? I lost the 2 screws used to secure the speaker assembly in place? I lost mine and can't even recall taking them out....I taped and labeled all the other screws to a board with details...individually, one screw at a time. My brain went offline when it comes to these 2 speaker screws...I have a pretty decent amount of leftover screws. My new screen came already attached and ribbon cables in place, most of the inner components up around the earphone jack already in place...so I didn't have to take much from my cracked screeen...I'm hoping the same sized screws might have been used elsewhere in the phone. I might luck out and have them on my leftover section and use them on my new speaker assembly missing screw problem...I also have lot of different screws from a macbook pro screw kit I bought years ago. after ordering a full screw kit I found where I'd stashed my orig screws so I have a bunch of macbook pro 2008 era screws to pic through..

But I can't remember anything about these screws or what they looked like...I'd be guessing to try and pic out a 2.4mm scre3w....Trying to maybe get this thing together tonite and thought I start with getting a look what these stupid little screws look like...its midnite but I thought I'd try anyways....below is a pic of a full screw set from ifxit..could someone point out the speaker assembly screw for me...that would be great if someone could jus say 3rd row 2nd from left...wherever it is and thats it...or if ya happen to know sam size used also on the yadda yadda....and I'll a happy camper....thanks in advance!

They screw through the assembly clip down into healthy little support studs that look plenty deep enough. I'm looking at them through magnified glasses and looks to screw down to the frame. So i'm wiling to eye-ball it...I just wanted to get a look at the screw from another angle besides the straight down from the top one from the pdf..Its tricky holding these little things and measure with my tape measure is that 2.4 or 2.5mm...looks like 2.0mm I tell my shaky hands and blurry vision self...But no way im forking out $15 to measure a penny screw! :-) I've got a bunch of screws to scavenge from my old frame if they used the phillips 2.4's anywhere else...

Just would like to see one of what Im looking for another angle...

Ordered the two screws from a site in china....gonna try a couple of something I have on hand in the meantime....

thanks!

They are 2.4mm Philips screws (see here).

Tenths of a mm make a big difference in an iPhone so your best bet is to get a digital caliper and measure the screws to be certain.
