As stated above, anyone know the size of the bit required. My gregorys does not say I I need to remove my seats.

Also anyone know the size of the hex key required for the rear, mine dows not appear to be metric?

Thanks in advance

T50 it is. I've found a T45 will do the job.

The steering wheel also uses a T50.

T50 is pretty much for anything important.
Which sucks, because a lot of torx kits only go to T45.

Hello Guys

If you want a torx kit Repco have one which has the 50 as well as bout 6 or 7 other bits for about $26.

The kit has a fitting which goes on to a socket rachet and worked well. :D
