I don't know the actual size? When I buy torx bit, I buy them in a set, several different sizes to chose from. I have seen safety torx bit, The screw or whatever has a rise in the middle. You have to use that type bit.

If your friends with the person at the autostore, they may let you borrow a bit off the shelf, so you can find one that will fit? They have let me do that in the past and the sales person was a stranger to me. I found the proper bit and I bought it.

I'm new to the site, I don't how to find this post again?

SOURCE: 2000 Lincoln Town Car (Engine Service) found a EVAP System?

Check your gas cap. If someplace can test it you might luck out. This website advertises manuals and info online. The evaporator cannister is suppose to purify excess fuel vapors. But a system which is not sealed will code an error lamp.

What kind of tool do I need to remove the engine cover on a 04 LINCOLN Town Car? The bolt appears to be a square (not a hex)

I have a 2002 4.6L engine and it has a cover on it too. I believe I used a 1/4 inch drive extension to fit into the square hole. At the front of this cover you will find 2 slots that the cover hangs on with the top cover plug (with the square hole) providing the 3rd mounting point. You will need to slightly shift the cover forward after removing the top cover plug to clear the front mounting tabs.

When replacing the cover, you hang the cover on the front tabs first and then pivot the cover to align the mounting hole for the cover plug.

Remove the 5 pin type plastic retainers on the plastic sight shield. You may have to pry up on the middle of the retainer while you unscrew the plastic pin. Do not apply much downward force. Remove the shield.

this is an engineering part number off the part. not the service number.
the service numbers you can use are yw1z-13c788-BA or YW1Z-13C788-AA, or XW1Z-13C788-AA.

However, Gino on ebay fixes these for $175. Go to ebay and type in the serach box LCM Lincoln town car, and you should find him. He is is California.

Good luck.

What tool do I need to remove the caliper guide pin bolt on a 2004 town and country?

I just finished doing the rears on my 2005 T&C. The caliper pins need to be removed with a 7mm allen wrench. I used an allen socket for a 3/8" ratchet, which was much easier than using my wrenches. These pins are threaded and cannot be "tapped" out as said by someone else.

When you replace them, make sure you have some high temp grease to put on them and check the pin rubber boots to make sure that they are not cracked or damaged. Good luck!.
