    Default Head light cover SCREW-ADJUSTING szie

    Hi,

    I try to put back my head light to the fender and I realize I lost my screw for putting headlight to fender.

    Datsun 240Z/260Z/280Z Head Lamp
    Based on there, it called SCREW-ADJUSTING.
    Part # 26022-01301.

    Does anyone know the size of screw?

    I don't want to pay $1 more for each screw.

    Thanks,

    It is an M6 Crossed Recessed Pan Head Screw that is 37mm long with a very small cam washer underneath the head.

    I had to replace a couple of mine when I reworked my head lights. I bought a box of 25 screws and the plastic receivers. I have a lot left, if you want some let me know (MP me and I can send them to you). If you look at the picture very close you can see the new ones.

    I find out it is M5 and I was looking at wrong parts.
    Actually, I was looking for part #10 instead of #5.
    - SCREW-PAN HEAD M5 01431-00053

    When I try to put it back together, I could not close the gap between fender and headlight bucket as you can see the photos. I was puzzled.... I search around the internet and figured out I put the headlight bucket from the front, not from the inside of the fender! no wonder the gap did not close.

    Now the problem solved!

    Thanks again!

    been there done that... sadly.
    There is scarcely anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse, and sell a little more cheaply.
    The person who buys on price alone is this man's lawful prey.
