Re: Torque bit size (REDJETTAMK2)

The one in the picture is the one you need -- I usually simply find a socket to fit the 12 point 12mm Triple Square driver -- most car parts places will sell you a set of three or four triple square sizes for around $10-15. One of the smaller sizes works on the driveshaft/CV Joints if you ever have to pull those. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: Torque bit size (Fat Rabbit)

well hopefully I never have to touch the drive shafts, but who knows.
But that be the size I'm looking for, I found out earlier tonight.
But thanks for your replies guys

Re: Torque bit size (REDJETTAMK2)

It is indeed a 'triple-square' or 12-pt bit, not a Torx bit. You need the 12mm for the head bolts, the 8mm for the CV flange bolts, and the 6mm for a bolt in the tranny (even though the Bentley says 5mm).

Re: Torque bit size (millerwj)

Thanks millerwj, I have it taken care of. Got the 4to2 mani, and the dual down pipe off yesterday and sitting in my garage. Damn I love wreckers!!
