i went to a wrecker down at bakers creek today - to get a new airbox cover, as the one i had has been hacked into and has holes and stuff that shuddnt be there... an also to get that lil hose that goes fromt he rocker cover into the throttle body as myne had gone missing / been hacked apart when i got it...

newayz

i found a ZL with the trip computer in it n went about pulling the thing out - n it has these werid screws holding it in... they arnt normal screws, they arnt allen key type screws either.. the head of them has like 5 points in a star shape.. except the center of all the screws, is raised in a bump type thing - meaning i couldnt get a screw driver onto it...

does ne1 have any idea howi can get those off?
(i know my description of the heads isnt good, but its the best ic an do..)

(n this ZL had the fairlane / fairmont console & dash, except the instrument cluster was of just the XF Falcon type.. has anyone heard of that from factory? it was definatly a ZL - i checked the id plate..)

the screws are sexurity torx head screws, just go down to bunnings/mitre 10/home hardware and get a torx driver set, about $20 or so
