I can't seem to find an answer anywhere on this forum. I took the skid plate
off to do my oil change and misplaced the screws. What's the screw size or part number to replace them?

The stock plastic piece? I'd never call that a "skid plate" :D

They are somewhat special coarse-thread screws, with a large button-head torx crown. They thread very loosely into plastic anchors, and you'll find they don't really stay very well, over time. Just get some sheet-metal screws maybe 3/4" or 1" long, into the same plastic anchors, and call it a day.

On my first V50, I replaced the screws with the same as the original, torx head and new plastic inserts. When I bought my 2nd V50, the original owner replaced them with just some regular hex head screws. Why didn't I think of that? It is so much more convenient and if the plastic inserts get stripped, you can just get larger screws.
