    Lost the little tiny screw in Dura Ace STI shifter

    I was replacing shift cables in my DA STI levers and dropped the tiny screw that holds the plastic cover in place inside the shifter. Naturally it fell into a crack and is lost forever. The plastic doesn't seem critical except as a dust/moisture barrier. I assume I am not running any great risk in the short run, but I would like to get another screw to put the cover in place. Any suggestions?
    Thanks,
    Raymond
    If it ain't broke, mess with it anyway!

    my supermarket sell a eyeglass repair kit it comes with tiny screws. maybe just maybe one will fit.


    take the other screw out and drop it in the same place maybe
    they will find each other making it easyer to find two .
    good luck!!

    did you hear the term SOL.
