Default Key fob screw missing

I lost the screw that holds the RX300 key fob shell together. Anybody know what size to get as a replacement screw, or a source? It has loosened several times over the years, but this time I didn't catch it in time.

Never mind. I found a guy in Texas on eBay selling them for $1/pair + $.50 shipping. Very reasonable, less than the price of gasoline to the dealer!

This problem seems would be solved. Next time or for little things dont be bashful and give your Lexus dealership (parts) a call. I have seen those guys work to help out the customers.

The screw on my key fob is really messed up, the head is all screwed up. I need to use a knife to open it, I should probably buy a new screw as well.

Do they fit? They look too long and the screw head is the wrong shape (at least in the picture he is using).

I would think that everybody is having keyfob issues like I did on my 2000 RX.

I found a guy on ebay that could replace your keyfob (without the electronic guts) for about $40 for a pair.

The amazing thing is that all I had to do was to take a picture with my cell phone of my old key and he was able to cut a new one from the pic. I have been using it for about a year like this. and no more floppy fob.

I don't have his name , but if anyone needs it I'm sure I can find it.

I got the aftermarket key fob off e-bay for $5.00 and $25 to get it cut at the dealer. But the screw came out in less than a week. Guess I should have used Loctite
