    After opening and closing the Wii yesterday, I accidently lost the cmos battery metal bolt. This bolt allows the cmos battery to be held in and is located on the underside of the Wii on the left side, next to the serial number/barcode, marked by a visible screw, inside of the Wii. It is 1mmx1mm very small, remember this is tohold the cmos battery in.
    Does anyone know where I can buy this from/or selling it?

    Would the Nintendo replacement parts shop on Nintendo's website not sell them?

    You could either look a little harder for it, it's kind of a big enough piece.. Your vacuum cleaner would have a hard time sucking it up. Or you could check a console repair place if you are lucky enough to have one in your area. 3rd option.... Buy another Wii. (or check E-Bay)

    your local screws and bolt shop should have one of those just bring the plastic mounting of the cmos battery so you could find a match for the screw

    or you could just tape it

    To change that: Up top, click "My Controls", then click "Edit Profile Information" (on the left side under "Personal Profile"). Change the country to UK at the top, then click the "Amend My Profile" at the bottom.

    As for getting a new screw, Nintendo sells the holder with the screw in it for $1.00. Not sure if they sell them overseas though. If they don't, take happydance's advice and either take the cover to the local hardware store and fit a screw for it, or just tape it.
