    2002 Tahoe. I have seen some posts alluding to this problem but have yet to see the actual solution. I am missing the screw that goes in the back of the overhead climate module. Any idea what size screw would fit?

    it's probably a typical 7mm screw, no junk drawer or bucket of nuts/bolts laying around? whatever fits will work

    I've tried a few but they're a PITA to get out when it's the wrong size.

    I'd think it'd be a fine thread.

    @NickH2002, #8 x 1" round head sheet metal screw. Goes into a speed clip - type thread. Technically it probably calls for a metric screw but the threads aren't really critical due to the speed clip.
