    It's the green circled screw in the pic below. Looking for size and thread info. I know the long case screws fit into it, so they have similar threads, but i can't tell the proper length it's supposed to be or where to find a replacement. (are they metric or standard?)

    Also, if anyone knows what that bar is called or where I can get a replacement. A screw hole is stripped and if i can replace it cheap i might as well while i'm fixing other stuff.

    Also I'm missing 2 short case screws. Anyone know if they can be found in stores or if i have to order them online?

    (attached pic to post in case anyone looks this up down the line and the linked image goes down)

    That's where I got that picture from. I just added the green circle. None of the ones I've seen thus far remove that bar and therefor never mention the screw type.

    Your green-circled screw (for the center bracket) should be 9.5mm length.

    The short case screws are 3.3mm in length.

    iFixit offers a replacement screw set for the bottom cover.

    Thanks. Any idea about the threads? I guess i could just take one of the case screws to a hardware store to try to match it now that i know the length
