main bonding screw

I have a mobile home that we just recently put wiring in. The electrical inspector told us the main bonding screw needed to be replaced but he didn't show what the main bonding screw is. Could someone help me and tell me where to locate the screw?

Shut off the main breaker. Carefully take the panel cover off. Do you see a green-colored screw? If not, maybe he meant "installed" rather than "replaced". Or maybe he meant "removed". Did he say why it needed to be replaced? It's hard for a screw to go bad.

Around here a bonding screw is required on the first means of disconnect after the meter. If you have a means of disconnect prior to your main service panel this may be the panel in question...

Most mobile home codes require grounds and neutrals to be separate.
