    Default Mac Performa 575 Screw Size and Type

    Does anyone know the screw size and type for the rear cover of a Macintosh Performa 575?

    Thanks,

    Don

    If the thread pitch is fine, I think it uses M4 screws. If the thread is larger, it should be the standard #6-32 screws.

    In case anyone needs the data, after much research and trial and error I have determined that the screw size and type for a Mac Performa is M3-0.5, 6mm long, truss head.

    I have not verified the original screw drive type. It is either Phillips or Torx.

    So it looks like it uses standard PC case screws, just a bit longer.
