I need the size of the beveled screw that is in the center of the inside door latch on the inside of the door. I took it off and went to the metric hardware store and the could not place it. Any help is appreciated.

What year bus? (EDIT: Late Westy; hi Jack!)

Are you talking about the one circled in yellow here? It's M5x10mm or M5x11mm, countersunk philips, depending on the M-Code.

Robbie,
No, I am talking about the single screw that is in the center of the square plate that has the black plastic finger like door latch. It is located above the arm rest in the drivers/passenger door. Sorry I don't have a picture.

Oh, behind the cab door pull. That might be hard to find even at a good hardware or fastener store. I've got an extra I can mail you if you PM me your address. Do you still have the little metal washer plate?

Can we have a number, or reference locale?

I believe he's referring to #48 that holds the interior handle cover plate (#46 & #47) to the door frame.

From the microfiche:

#48 - 014 263 3 - SCREW, CSX - AM5x10

That's what I'm referring to as well. I've got an extra plus the square washer not shown but on the OG trim.
