    Mine has 1/2" bolt heads. If you have Torx or something go to Autozone or Pepboys or Sears.

    i got a set of 6 or 7 different sized bits from Car Quest for 20 bucks. i never knew how handy that set is. well worth the money. it came with a rubber holder for the bits and an adaptor for a 1/4" drive.

    I found a set at Pep Girls for around $10.oo with the adapter and ruuber case. They are security Torx bits (have a hole in the center of the bit). Hope this helps! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    The security Torx bits have a hole in the center to fit bolts with the pin. I've got the same bolts and that's why I bought the set. A good investment unless you want to change the bolts. Good luck! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Take them out with lock pliers and replace them with 1/2" head hex bolts. I ordered some security torx bits and they didn't even fit. The tab on the bolts in the truck was too big for the bit. The hex bolts make it way easier.
