Hiya,
Have you got the old screws out?

Thanks

Yes they have already fallen out and the fan cover is completely loose.

Hiya,
Thanks for that.

The easiest repair is to fit slightly larger (thicker) screws.
Don't use any that are longer.

Stainless steel self tapping screws are best for this.

Simply screw them into the existing holes and they'll cut new threads themselves.

Hope this helps
Thanks
