Replacement cabin air filter cover screw?

So I was changing the cabin air filters, as one does, and I got the little torx screw out fine, and the filters changed, but when I tried to put the torx screw back in, it fell somewhere into the deep interior of the car, never to be seen again. Currently I have the cover taped back on, but don't think that's a good long term solution. Does anyone know what size that screw is, so I can get a replacement at Home Depot or wherever?

Topic bump - still haven't found the correct size. Got a couple of guesses at least on another forum. Any educated guesses here?

I actually was trying to screw the screw back in without the original cover so I could install that magnetic cover when it dropped!

Anyway, this is all resolved - I went in there again this morning, armed with an endoscope and a magnetic fishing tool, and found and retrieved the screw. Screwed it in, the magnetic cover works like a charm.
