Anyone know the actual size of the lcd retainer screws on an ipad 3?

The guides dont give any specific description on the actual thread pitch and length of the LCD retaining screws. #00 refers to the size of the screwdriver and 2mm the screw diameter, but for some reason its super hard to find the info on the net. Everyone just wants to sell kits and not say whats included size wise. Thanks guys!!

All the guide specifies is the screwdriver size (#00) and diameter. No mention of thread pitch and length. Mine are missing or I'd measure them.


If it's missing you can get a full set here:


Thanks,but trying to be resourceful and get the 4 I need without dropping what amounts to a stupid (but still trivial) sum of $ online. I may try a 0 172 sae fastener and the threads might just be large enough to bore new holes.


That's a lot of work to save $2.99


It's not the money at all- (ask my wife about motocross parts). I live in Hawaii and everything takes forever to get here and I just want this thing working again.
