It would be a pretty safe bet they are M5, but they cost bugger all anyway so if in doubt order both. Take one out and measure the length.
Then get on to Bolts Nut and Screws Online. They are based on the Gold Coast and their service is excellent.
Get the stainless steel screws so they don't rust again. They are so cheap I have felt guilty about the size of my order and bought extra screws to pad it out a bit.

I need some of those. How are they measured? The entire length or the length of the thread?
Traditional way of measuring bolts is from the end to the shoulder - ie the entire length except for the head.

This is the sort of stuff that everybody needs to know, thanks again Twizz.
