Released November 2020, the PS5 console features vastly upgraded visuals and an innovative new Dualsense controller. The space-age black-and-white color scheme is a noticeable departure from PlayStation designs of the past.

PS5 SSD installation - replacement screw and spacer

I tried to install a new WD SN850 SSD in my PS5 last night. However when I went to remove the screw and spacer in the bay, the screw was stuck, and I just can’t remove it at all. I’m looking for a replacement screw and spacer to fit the SSD. Does anyone have any recommendations from Amazon UK or any other retailer? I’ve contacted Sony, but they haven’t got back to me at all, which isn’t a good sign. Many thanks in advance.

@Akifan Jannata I still haven't had a response from Sony Customer Support. I'd happily buy the screw and spacer if I knew what I was looking for! So frustrating!

Hi i have the same probleme if one of you find the good dimension for the screw can you tell me

To replace the screw that holds down the M.2 access cover, use a M3 × 16 screw.

To replace the screw that holds down the M.2 SSD drive, use a P3 × 10 screw.

To replace the spacer that supports the M.2 SSD drive, use a spacer with the dimensions φ5.5 x 3.95 mm.

Where do they sell the spacers? I can't find it with an internet search.

I have found a screw that has done the job for me. I got the M3-0.5 x 10mm flat head phillips screw, which fits perfectly. I didn't need a spacer either. The screw did the job on it's own. Hope that helps
