Updated see post 5 or so
So I'm trying to put the oil sender into the blank #10 on the oil flange but I gotta get the blank out first. I've been using a T30 torx piece and can't get the blank out - I think it is starting to strip - so I'm stopping.
Please Help - How To Get #10 Out!

Re: Starting to Strip #10 - Oil Temp Sender - Help! (AhTheGTI)

I killed it http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif
I first started with the 5mm, but I could manually turn the 5mm in the hole. So I though what the heck? Looked at it closely and it appeared to be torx, not hex (hmmm) I popped in the 30T and presto fit snug and held when turning manually. Use wrench on 30T feel strip; not grip - so I stop. Constult instructions and VW Vortex - should be a 5mm. Try process again, same result.
Bottom line - 5mm doesn't work 30T seems correct but I'm not going to strip it (or make it worse) by adding a bunch of force. 4.5 and 5.5mm don't fit

I can't get it out - help!
(Though I was able to do the oil pressure w/ relocation kit - figures I can do the 'harder' one and not the easy one)
