Does anybody know the size of the Torx bit required to remove the seats from my NC. I have two sets here, but they only go to T40 and is too small. I'm assuming I can get them from SuperCheap?
Any help appreciated, i'm fitting my front DC leathers today hopefully.
Cheers,
Mick

I found Super Cheap only had sets up to T40

you will find more expensive sets that go up to T50 at Repco, Auto1 etc.

I paid $40 for a Kingchrome set

A T45 will get the job done, but you'll probably ruin the bit after the job.

T50's seem to be hard to find, except in expensive sets.

I've got a Jaycar security bit set, that goes up to a T45, it worked for changing steering wheels.

I've also got a Kingchrome set that goes to T55, not cheap, but is a full socket set too.

Sounds like the same set I have, has been a good investment in my opinion though.

I still question though, why they used torx screws and security code on the radios in the ef etc. like whose going to steal a cheap tapedeck. :lol:

Thanks fella's,
It is indeed a T50. I went to supercheap first.......nothing over T40 :x
Then went to Bunnings...........nothing over T45 (and that bit was in a $99 superbit set) :evil:
Finally, I called into a local tool specialist, Gasweld at Warners Bay. They had a T50, but in a set called Toolex Industrial Mechanics Bit Set. Cost me $69, But has every Torx bit i'm ever gunna need in two length's, 30mm & 75mm. Wasn't planning on spending that much, but i'm sure the kit will be well used :D
But the main thing is I finaaly found one and the new seats are now in.
Cheers,
Mick

crikey.

I got both my old set from Supercrap for about $20 15 years ago.

I had to get the new set as the cheap ones were bending and missing some step sizes.

I got the Kingchrome set for $35 at Bunnings and they fit better.
