When I got my brand new 4003, the action was a little high for my tastes, however as it played perfectly (what else could you ask from a ric) I left it that way. The bridge pickup was hotter than the neck one, so I tried to raise the neck pickup a little. Being the phillips screwdrivers what they are (and being I what I am :-), I tried to raise it a little too much so that the screew driver slipped out and I damaged the screw head.

I looked Rics part schematics to find out that it was part 5203 (tap screw 4x3/4 with pan head). So I ordered it from ricsrus in the UK (I ordered some, just in case). Today I received several screws tap 4x3/4 with pan head. When I removed the screw on the pickup I found it didn't match, I suppose in the guitars the screws goes into the wood but in the bass it goes into the pickup surround hence the difference. The screw I took from the bass neck pickup looks more like part 5101 (machine screw with pan head). Am I correct? Where can I get it from (Here in my town in Spain is imposible to find screws to American Standards). Where could I order it from? Ricsrus doesn't list many screws and is the only sit I think I can order parts from.

RIC parts can now be ordered internationally, so you could get them from the Boutique link above, I would think.

I've already tried the boutique but unfortunately only shipping to the US or Canada is available

Ok, try this link. Doesn't show hardware, but he may be able to supply what you need if you email him your need.

Here's a link, it has Fender p/u screws as well as different sized screws, look at the schematics that you need and they may work...

They're pretty cheap too.
