    Is there anywhere I can get one from?
    I see sets selling for £30< but I really don't want to spend that much.
    If there is no place to get one, am I alright just without 1 screw?

    thanks.

    You are alright with one screw missing, my 2009 MBP also had a screw missing, though I found a replacement in my screw collection, thus I can't tell you where to get one.

    was your screw collection just one you bought from any DIY store?
    It's my bottom cover btw, forgot to mention it.

    It was my bottom cover too, and the screw collection is just an accumulation of various screws over the years, from small external HDD enclosures and other computer components.
    Maybe have a look at a DIY store, or better, an electronics store, whey you can buy actual electronics like switches and relays to build your own electronic device or a computer store, that might have a few screws left.

    All this talk about screws, flies would go nuts.

    In case the rubber on the bottom case starts peeling off, Apple will replace the bottom free of charge and it includes a complete set of screws and a screw driver. No need to return old bottom case. Just thought I would post this here because my screws kept falling out and the rubber was peeling off. :) They will over night it.

    I like iFixit for their parts and guides online, but some of their parts are expensive, i.e. screws.

    You can go through their guide or enter your Mac ID # and find their list of parts.
