Default Shifter knob missing set screw

My Shifter knob is missing it's set screw. This is a 2003 Pt Cruiser Touring Edition.

Can anyone tell me what size screw to buy?

Go to your local U-pull-it or Pick-A-Part with some metric allen wrenches. The set screw is the same on all PTCs, I think. This would be better than getting a screw at the hardware store. The set screw for the shifter handle has a tab on the end that goes into a hole in the shifter handle to properly hold the knob in place.

Yep.

If you (Alhartman6) wants, I can grab an original set screw at the salvage yard Friday. I'm going anyway. Just let me know by PM with your mailing address.
rckstein, Fk5 and ptprice like this.

I'm sorry to say I got an empty envelope that looks like the screw punched through the plastic bag, and the envelope and was lost in the mail.

Thanks for trying, I really appreciate it.

I ended up buying a replacement on eBay. I didn't want to put anyone to any more trouble finding me a set screw.

I think I'll prefer the new one, as it is not like a cue ball.

That's good that Handy posted a pic of what it looks like, so that you get the correct style

I bought a complete replacement shifter knob with set screw. So, the picture is not going to help me at all. I wish the one he sent had made it here.
