Default Shift boot flange screws/ bolts

I replaced the seal that is under the shift boot. There was one screw holding the flange on. I do not think it is the proper screw or bolt that they are supposed to be. The one that is in there is a screw with course threads, looked more like a license plate screw Can anyone tell me where to get the right ones for this? Pictures would be great also. Ill need more than just "10 mm", as I will be checking the local hardware store. There is no junk one within an hour and a half of me either. Thanks for any help!

I don't know the actual size but any sheet metal screw with a low profile head will work. The hardware store will have them and they'll be inexpensive. Ideally you would measure the size of the thru-hole in the floor and then get screws that have a minor diameter that's the same size.

If the one bolt you have is the right size, thread wise, take that one with you to the hardware. If you have a can full of screws like most of us, find one that fits nice and snug and take that one with you to the store. You'll know you have the right size if you can tighten it down and put a little torque on it.

If you are talking about the shifter flange, I recall those being M6 x 1
Maybe 10 or 15mm long. But I could be wrong. It's been years since I've worked on one.

it doesnt really matter unless it sets your OCD in hyper mode. as long as it has a somewhat flush head and it holds the boot and metal lip down it should be ok. it might drive others nuts, but to me, the bolts/screws are hidden by the carpet. as long as i can remove them again later, i am good.

Like others have said, just get some that you like really. When I bought my truck it had 6 different sizes and types of bolts holding the shifter boot down. It's on my to do list to change them out for like bolts one day but it doesn't really matter as long as the boot is held down.
