    I have an 89 with torx screws holding the top on but, they have a metal piece inside them so you cant use the average torx socket!! Does anyone know where I can get this tool? I havent tried the dealer yet. I figured Id ask you guys first!!

    Thanks, Ken /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Go to Sears, buy the socket, take off the bolts and return the socket and say it didn't fit and use regular bolts /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    That's what I did.. /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    I believe the size is T-45, Actually now that I think about it....I think its a T-40 /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    You may as well get the whole set...you can get the at Kragen or Napa too. Usually comes with about 5-10 sizes and runs under $20. You'll use them on other things as well...like seat belts, etc./forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
