I seem to recall that one of the RK05 manuals warned that when re-fitting
said screws you should always put them in, turn them anticlockwise
until the threads engage and then tighten them clockwise. Just
screwing them in not only risks (as ever) stripping the thread in the
plastic housing, but also the action of cutting the new thread may
cause bits of plastic to break loose and they might (will!) end up
where they shouldn't
