Missing injector screw size...ideas?

Hi, I'm missing the two screws that hold the injectors down. Or should I say, Torx bolt...

I had a look on this parts website and they include everything BUT injectors.

Can anyone tell me what size screws these are? Please & Thank you.

The injector appears to be clipped to the rail itself.

Check this out

I am going to assume you mean the two screws that hold down the fuel rail for the fuel injectors? They are M5-12mm pan head with a Torx head. But you could use any pan head IMHO. It is #6 on the link you gave.

And be VERY careful with the fuel rail and the nipple that the fuel feed hose goes into. It is very small and fragile and will break off if you look at it wrong. Ask me how I know

Thanks, yes it's the bolts holding down the rail. Thanks for the input, it reminded me of the injector clips. I found the right bolts, fortunately I stashed all the bolts etc in a can while disassembling and just found the can...this lapse in memory...reminder to ventilate gasoline well in the garage, those are some brain cells I'll probably never get back.

You have to know I kicked myself when I read your post. Well I did use never-seize. The lock tight I bought is like liquid that runs rapidly anyway, first time I bought it...and used it on the sprocket I swore I'd never use because it was such a bitch to get the old one off...seriously I broke the first puller I bought...took me a month to get it sorted, seeing as I have only a couple hours here and there to work on it or look for parts...when I think of loc tite ...I need the thick stuff I can just dab on the rim of the bolt. I can't believe people put that stuff on their threads...
