Where can I find replacement bolts / screws for the radio and HVAC controls for my 96 Blazer? Even the thread size would be fine, I really would prefer to switch the bolts for screws anyway but at this point I only have one random screw that doesn't fit very well holding in the HVAC which holds in the stereo by force lol.

Can't find the thread size ANYWHERE!!

Thanks y'all

I would just bring a sample to the hardware store, and find the closest matching ones.

I would image that almost any screw that started in the hole and grabbed would work. They're screwing into metal inserts that are on the plastic, it's not a tapped metal lug or anything but rather just a whole in some sheeted metal, so the thread pitch doesn't need to be exact.

If you really want to be exact, go to a local scrap yard and yank any number of random 7mm head sized interior screws out of any early 2000's model GM vehicle and they will probably do the trick.
