SOURCE: 99 silverado 2500, what is the correct size torx

The correct size is a T55, which is NOT included in the 3 bit brake set sold at Sears. Fortunately I got the larger set. A note to all you mechanics out there - brake caliper bolts do NOT need the tightness that only 3 gorillas can provide. Yes, they do need to be tight but not to the extent that one is breaking bits to free the bolt - and no, it was not due to rust. And why on earth are there torx head bolts on the Chevy anyway? I will go back to Ford if I ever get the chance!

What type of torx bit do I need yo remove the engine cover from my 2000 Lincoln town car 4.6 liter engine?


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?

Screw bit size the steering column cover on a 2001 Ford Escape


You thought it was a Phillips Screw

It is a Torx Screw like a T20 size, most likely

You also come across some metric hex at times,
so make sure it looks like a double hex,thus torx

HOW TO CHANGE BLOWER MOTOR RESISTOR ON 1996 VOLVO


You will need a torx bit set, I am not sure of the size, but all the torx screws in the removal should be the same size. First, removed the panel under the glove box, then remove the glove box itself. The you will see the SRS passenger air bag plate, which is held on by 3 nuts, 13mm if I remember right. Then take that out. Now you will see the blower to the right when looking through the opening in the glove box. To the left you will a black flat plug which is plugged into the back of the rectangular shaped Resistor; it has an ear on it where there is a screw attaching the resistor to the ventilation duct. Simply unplug the resistor and remove screw. Installation is reverse of removal.

How to replace the ignition switch on a 95 S-10 Blazer


From WikiAnswers for a 1997 model - -

You will need the following tools:
Steering wheel puller
Torx bits (get a set, you need 3 sizes)
Inverted Torx ( a set is available at Schucks/Kragen/Checker Screwdriver
A few zip ties
Wire cutters
DISCONNECT THE BATTERY
Start by disconnecting the yellow wire under the dash for the airbag. Now turn the steering wheel 90 degrees to access the underside of the steering wheel. You will have to insert a smaller size flat blade screw driver into the 4 holes on the back of the steering wheel and rotate them to release the airbag. Now remove the nut holding the steering wheel on and remove the steering wheel. BE VERY CAREFUL WITH THE AIRBAG MODULE!! Now remove the lower column cover with 2 Torx screws. You will now have access to 2 inverted Torx screws that hold the top column cover in place. Remove the hold-down ring that holds the cover to the shaft. Look on the top of the ignition cylinder housing and find the small hole. Insert a small Allen wrench into the hole and turn the key to "run" position and the ignition cylinder will come out, now the top cover will come off, giving access to the ignition switch. You will need the smallest inverted Torx bit for the 2 screws that hold the ignition switch in. You will have to cut a couple of zip ties to free the wiring. Now get a Torx bit and a 7mm socket and remove the lower dash panels to get access to the wiring harness. You will need the 7mm to unscrew a bolt that holds the connector together under the dash. Just follow the wiring to see what I mean. Once the connector is loose, you will see two plastic strips that run along side the connector. These are easy to remove and slide off, and are keyed so you cannot reinstall them wrong. Hope this helps.
Great answer/directions listed above. I would add that one can use a 3/16" section of brake line to get the two e3 or e4 external torx screws out (holds the ignition switch on) instead of buying the whole kit. Buy a 6" or 8" section of brake line, cut in half, take the cut end and "lightly tap" it on (with a small hammer) the torx head. The metal brake line is soft enough to form around the head. Take a pliers and spin off........they are not that tight nor hard to get off. Otherwise you need to buy the whole smaller external torx kit (2") and most places don't carry them.. as above I just did the job also and in fact used his answer.
Good luck

Tail light replacement Removing Lens Cover


Just use a Torx wrench. I can't remember if it's a size 15 or 20, but it's pretty easy. Look closely for the Torx screws. I believe you have to open the tailgate to see them.


As stated above, the inside edge of each light has two Torx screws, but there are also two plastic "pop-rivet(?)" type connectors along the outside edges that come loose with a gentle **** away from the vehicle.

I was getting frustrated trying to get the air bag off the wheel to do a column change out to a tilt wheel. The above worked perfectly for removing the airbag. However, the inverted torx bits can be removed with a good 6 point socket on a 1/4 inch drive ratchet as well. No need to buy a special tool.

Good luck

How do i replace my throttle position sensor?


Hello! You will need to first make sure that you have a "tamper proof" Torx T20 bit/driver. These types of bits look like a normal Torx bit, but have a hole in the center (example pictured)

448f94d.jpg The TPS is located on the side of the throttle body (indicated below), and there are 2 Torx head screws holding it in place.

47719bf.jpg
You need to disconnect the connector from the TPS first, by lifting up on the tab (gently) and pulling the connector away from the sensor. Once you have done that, you can remove the screws and then the sensor itself. The TP sensors on these cars do not require adjustment, so there is no need to mark the location as on earlier vehicles. You can now position your new TP sensor and replace the Torx screws and fasten them down snugly - but too tight as you may crack the plastic tabs. Reattach the sensor connector until it snaps into place, and you're all done.

Hope this helps and good luck!

Oil leak


It is a t-60 torx bit. When you buy it make sure you can get it out of the socket.I've change two and the space is very limited. Put torx bit on and use a wrench to turn the bit.(if it comes out of the socket it the body is shaped like a bolt). Dealer has the gasket kit $5.
