YJ Headlight Adjusting Screw

The headlight adjusting screws on my YJ broke, and the dealer wants 12 dollars a piece for them. I want to swap them all out, but for 12 bucks that rather expensive for a small piece of plastic. Does anyone know the Dorman (Help section of the local auto parts store) that I can use as a replacement?

They look similar to the GM ones, but I haven't tried them yet. For the time being I used a washer behind the plastic "nut" to hold things in place.

$2 at any parts store, they will be in the generic parts rack.

A couple bucks at Advanced. Where I got mine.

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about.
