Air filter box 1.9 m jet

The top cover of the air filter box on my 2006 156 1.9 jtdm is held by three 5 mm dia self-taps instead of screws going into captive nuts that I had on an earlier model. This is much easier for getting the screws out, but not so good for getting them to grip again when reassembling. Does anyone know where I can get 5.5 mm dia x 35 mm long hex head self-taps to replace them with? The only ones I can find on the internet are for bulk purchase.

I changed my filter last week and one of the screws would not come out so I had to saw it off and push it inside to get it out...... I used a dome headed wood screw with a small washer on it to screw it back in, it held so well i replaced another that didnt do up so well, dont think it matters to much aslong as it holds and i'm sure it cant rust any more than the screws that were already in there, I recon Alfa buy all there screws pre rusted
