Roomba sidebrush screw size

Wrote: Hi I have a Roomba 560 that I just purchased a new side brush for, and the screw to the side brush has been
lost (Bad kitten! Not a toy!). Roomba is telling me I have to buy another side brush to get another screw (This seems silly. I don't know why they would not have a blow out diagram with this information). Does anyone know what size screw is used?

I think the 500 series and 400 series use the same screw.

Although there is a slight difference I don't have the dimensions of the 5XX sidebrush.

Off Topic: Put a masking tape on top of side brush covering the screw. If the side brush comes off, the screw stays with the side brush. This does not help you now. But it will help you from losing it in the future.

I broke down and ordered 100 of the 500/600 series screws. If anyone wants one, PM me. I will use Vic's model and for $1 in a self addressed stamped envelope, send you 5 of the screws. Please note that these aren't exactly the same and have a slightly smaller head but hold the brush securely and fit the thread perfectly.
