Resolved 2G Throttle body shaft screws

Ayeee I know there are a few posts on these screws already but I just wanted to provide some quick answers to anyone who needs to replace their stripped screws and need their DSM back up and running quickly. I always recommend sticking to OEM if you can afford to though.

If you need to source some screws locally and can't find any oem screws or don't have time to order some .75 pitch screws. These screws are readily available at most hardware stores for less than a $1.

I used M4 x .7 x 8mm flat head screws and they worked perfectly, just make sure you use locktite blue so they don't back out. They're a bit shorter than the oem screws but that doesn't matter if you use locktite which serves the same purpose as peaning the extra length.

Screws similiar to this:

This was done on a 2g TB, pretty sure 1g TBs have the same size screws but I would confirm that :thumb:
