What Are The Replacement Screws For The Switch Backplate?

Where On Earth Is This Part?

(Screws For Console Backplate, NOT JOYCONS)

So my Switch is missing 2 screws, one on the top section of the device (the screw hole near the Switch's fan hole) while one screw is missing near the bottom near the charging port. Strangely enough I do not know how these screws went missing, but I will indeed try and purchase a repalcement back for my unit, however I can never find what screws are used at all anywhere on Google, even most Ebay and Amazon serches return with suggestions of Joy-Con replacement screws,which is soemthing I do not need, I need the screws primarily for the back plate of the device. Does anyone know where to get these screws and what screws are used in the back housing of the switch? (and yes the top and bottom more specifically )

Is this a good question?

Thanks. But upon closer inspection it seems that there aren’t any Y000 screws. Those are the ones at the back of the switch.

by

Your suggested link or Shane Pe's? because his are the full assembly screws, every screw for the main console.

Shane Pe’s are only joy cons replacment screws. I am looking for some for the back of the switch. At the back without the joy cons there are 4 screws at the corners of the switch. I need those ones. The ones that require a Y000 screwdriver to take out.

Its not the Y000 but a set of screws that fit that back area. I read the description and found a picture clearly separating a set of console screws from joycon screws, please take a look at the listing again.
