You'll have to expand, use the fiche drawings to help i.e. https://www.bike-parts-honda.com/honda-motorcycle/1000-MOTO/CBF/2006/CBF10006/Frame/HEADLIGHT/17MFA6I1/F__0100/2/2024 and see if the part you are thinking off is on that page, parts 8-11 look to be available from Honda.  I can't imagine any bulb-clip retaining screw (my H7s' clips are just awkward pita wire clips that secure to the shell).

Assuming you have a 1000A (other pages on that site cover most others).
Did you remove the fairing for the dipped bulb??  Surely your hands reach.

Thanks
The screws Iím on about hold either side of the retaining clip
I donít think they are meant to come out while you change the bulb
You just press in on the retainer clip and you then can free the bulb
Yes I removed the side fairing but I see that a small scre is also missing which holds the retaining clip
Where can I find the correct screw for this it is not in the diagram
Thanks

Gotcha - You mean the screw that holds the small metal plate that forms a hinge to secure the retaining clip.

Have a good look around inside the headlamp shell, if the rubber shroud (dust cover) was fitted correctly there shouldn't be enough room for the screw to go AWOL. If you can't find it I think its just a self tapper freely available from your local motor factor (Halfords if you must). You could remove the screw securing the main beam clip and take that along for comparison.

Ah.
I don't suppose they are generic/standard holders, I see on the web some with two screws diagonally apart (look like small machine screws) that hold the whole bulb holder in place - on those the clip looks to be retained by a pin but I can't quite see.

Go with removing another screw and find a match.
