Does anyone know where to buy the right mounting screws for installing a new
SSD drive in a MacBook Pro?

MacBook Pro upgrade documentation refers to these mounting screws here:

But apparently Apple won't sell those, at least not here in Switzerland. SSD
brands e.g. Crucial does not offer the screws as part of their SSD package
either and the ones already installed won't fit the new drive.

Can anyone advice,
Best regards,

When you write that they don't fit, do you mean the
diameter, the thread pitch, or the length is wrong?

You could try to determine the size and thread pitch
(compare against other screws the laptop uses in other
locations) and buy from a hardware (nuts-n-bolts type
hardware not computer hardware) 'site online, or check for
notebook repair centers in your region as they may have
spare screws they'd give or sell to you.
