Headlight screws

Hope someone can help me here. I got into an accident a few months ago and now that the weather is getting better, it's time to replace the headlight that was damaged. My problem is that the whole header panel was shattered and all (or at least most) of the screws that hold everything together were lost on the ground. And the new header panel doesn't come with any hardware. Do they make a complete screw kit? If so, does anyone know the part number. Thanks.

just use sheet metal screws of the correct size and length found at any hardware store for the header panel.
i've got tons of mismatched sheet screws in my junk.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

Not to worried about the header panel itself. I figured I could use anything that fit. It's the adjusting screws for the headlight I'm looking for.

I don't think the aftermarket offers the headlight adjusters. Dealer or salvage yard would be your choices for the vertical and horizontal adjusters and the pivot stud if that's missing also..

Thanks for the link morrist95. What they show there is actually better than chrysler. They didn't even know what parts I needed.

Yeah, the parts books can be a little confusing to the new guys on the counter, maybe I need to unretire and start hustling Chrysler parts again, lol.

Anyway, the part numbers you need for your Jeep are (depending on what you lost)

55055121 Vertical Adjuster
55055122 Horizontal Adjuster
56006403 Pivot

Quantity 1 each to do one side of vehicle.

Perfect. That's exactly what I was looking for. When I went to the parts counter, their diagram didn't even include the L shaped adjusting gears, so they didn't know what I needed. But with the diagram on the link and the part numbers, I'm confident I'll be getting the right parts. Thanks again guys.
