Missing screw

I have the projectors from Lydia installed and have run into a problem. The small screw that holds the clip for the bulb to stay in the housing on one of my lights has gone missing. I dropped it and have not been able to find it. I have since moved, so searching more is out of the question. Does anyone have any ideas for places for me to find a new screw? I have looked at hardware stores and none carry anything like them from what I have seen. Any help would be appreciated because I am down to one headlight. Thanks in advance.

Try contacting the company of the lights they mite be able to help you out. If nothing else works you mite have to make something to hold the clip in place. I dont know how hot the inside gets but maybe a dap of some hot glue mite help you out and if you ever need to remove it in the future hot glue can easily be removed.

I contacted them and their customer support sucks balls. At first they were awesome answering all my questions, and then I bought the lights. I was thinking about hot glueing it in but didn't know how that would stand up. Might as well try it. I'm about to go wash the bike so maybe I will try that. Thanks

I was about to go buy some gasket sealant when I got an email from the guys at Retro Solutions. They sent me two of these screws for free.
