2002 Classic - Interior Cabinet Screws Have Fallen Out!

I have noticed that there are 4-5 missing screws holding the cabinets / closet to the wall. What length / size screws should I replace them with? Worried about selecting to long of a screw. The entire cabinet can move away from the wall. Do these screws go into a channel behind the wall. Thanks in advance. John

You mAy have already thought of this but maybe pull out a screw that remains and match it?

The OP posted several months ago and presumably has fixed the issue, but just in case, FWIW:

No, there is no plate nut or spar or anything, even a wood block on the back side of the interior skins in which to set the screw; its just that one sheet of Aluminum.

So, you could dab the threads with some loc-tite before screwing them back in to help mitigate them shaking back out, or secure them with pop rivets if you have enough room to get a rivet tool back in there -- that would be a more "permanent" solution. if you ever want to pull them out, you would have to drill them out.
