Do you have a set of balance screw holding tools?

They’re not perfect but I don’t think I could replace those tiny screws without them. If you do have a pair of these you can lay the screw down in the horizontal, open the tool, slide it over the screw head, slightly tighten it down, adjust it and then do the final tightening.

I hope that helps!
