What screws attach the bottom panel of the 2021 MacBook Pro (A2485)?

@mw747 Here is part of the screw chart for the ones that Apple is using. Of course, nothing is ever easy.

Hi, where would I be able to get these screws?


I'm also looking for these screws :/ More specifically, the 923-06869 ones.


Yeah, I want to know the different size screws for a MacBook Pro 2020? It has 8 screws, but I need to see the sizes for just the back cover. I'm surprised this is not on the web.


@elainefargo the back cover or do you mean the bottom cover? what model is your MBP?


Oh, I meant the bottom cover. I may have used screws from my other laptop, MacBook Air and if so I need to swap them out. I spilled water on the MacBook Air because the water bottle was warped with a rounded bottom from the store. I wiped it and put it in brown rice, covered. After 2 months it works perfectly again but brown rice got inside. I shook it and a lot of brown rice came out the top even out some keys. But as I was using it I could hear a slight version of a couple popcorns piping, but not as loud and not a lot. So, I took the bottom cover off there wet three rices and I let them fall of, but as I shake it, it still sounds like there is some rice under the place on the other side of the mother board.
