I need to know what size they are. Please help me. I have Googled for a week and it pulls up how to replace. I've replaced both but I have to use a screwdriver to crank and the key to unlock the steering wheel. Please help my desperate broke you know what. Thank you

Hello, 

We feel your pain. Without access to Toyota's parts manuals, we cannot find out the length and thread type of the screws you are looking for. A certified Toyota dealership and service center will have access to these parts guides, and likely be able to order them for you if they do not have them in stock. By going directly to the dealership, you can not only find out the information you are looking for, but you may be able to get the screws right there and then. The screws should be less than a dollar each. 

Good luck!
