The hardware maintenance manual does not specify which screws go where, there are 2 types used in the base. I think the longer one goes in the middle to pull the keyboard down, but really not sure. Doesn't anyone know or is there a diagram anywhere?
I want to buy a new set and make sure they are in the correct position, because previously one fell out, the keyboard was raised up slightly, and made marks on the screen.
The ones with thicker shaft should be traceable, the others you'll need to try carefully.
Check if the keyboard or other palmrest part moves up when you turn the screws all the way in.
With the bottom already in place, stick e.g. a needle/toothpick in the holes to see how deep they are.
Apparently those screws are NOT supposed to be completely removed, just loosened!
That's what the O-rings are for: to keep loosened screws in place.
And that's also what the HMM says:
