Its difererent to what the EF/EL have it has a star shaped thing with i nob in the midle. So im thinking that it is a tamper proof one.

The biggest size stanley head in a normal screwdriver set fits it pretty damn well too (thats how i got mine off). If you need to drill out the knob in the middle if its one of those.

take the car to ford, ask them to loosen the bolts for you.
Thats what i did with my Mum's AU.
I don't think they're standard Torx bits, they have 1 more or 1 less point in the star then a normal torx bits.

they're a 5 point t-30 bit with a centre hole iirc. I got mine from FTG auto salvage. It wasn't cheap but it was cheaper than what ford would have charged.. and also i get to keep the tool and its come in handy.

Thanks to all

I've used it a couple of times when forum members up here need to change their steering wheel. I've changed mine from a forté plastic one, to an XR leather one, to a TE50 momo black/grey one so its pretty much paid itself off.
