Help with headlamp inner screw

Hi All,
Like many others (it seems!) the threads have stripped on the lug for the headlamp inner screw. I've decided to fit rivet-nuts to the lugs but can't find the pitch of the thread on the screw.. Is anyone able to advise the correct pitch so I can order the right rivet-nuts?
 
Many thanks in advance..
James

    The screw is made up of 2 parts.
    If you have the complete set of parts take it down to a screw parts vendor, There's always a guy in a large town/city who everyone goes to to find that info.
    Measure the diameter of the inner screw as you know it will be metric and if unsure which, order one of each as they don't cost much.
