I got hold of one somehow, but this one was missing or never had the little 'puck' inside to protect the cable.

Want it?
Anyway, maybe check any new ones to be sure it's there Nerd emoticon

If you decide to go this route, make sure that they'll fit under the gear selector box cover.

These make simple work of it. 8 mm ignition wrench and 7 mm socket with screwdriver handle.

Thanks for the offer, but I'm ok. I think the picture below of the socket and screwdriver extension is what I should have thought of a long time ago. Facepalm emoticon

My 2 cents: Unless this is JIS phillip screws, I'll pass. Too easy to cam out and strip.

I finally replaced my inner one with an allen-head grub screw. Now I can finally put the cover back on, if I can find it!

So why not replace your current screws with phillips head screws? They're M5.
As long as they have the little thingy inside as Terry mentioned, they'll be fine.

I think the idea is to pull the cable and just use a screwdriver to snug the cable tight so it doesn't slip, and then tighten with a wrench. Using two wrenches from the start has always been a dread for me.
