Get a set like this. It is called a security torx bit. It is easier then drilling them out. Not sure what size it is though.

you can get cheap sets from supercheap or bunnings, places like them. or if you can figure out the size then you can just buy that bit. some outdoor and camping store even have security torx bit on the cheap.

They don't cost that much. I bought mine from Supercheap for like $10-15. It's cheap, but it has proven useful for both the head unit and seat bolts.
