Question about Electrical Supplies
Was watching this video on changing the clutch on my 2001 beetle and it said I needed a #8 triple square socket to remove cv axle can I just use a star bit socket or do I need to order one
The star bit or torx bit as it is commonly known is different from the triple square socket.
here is a Wikipedia site that explains torx, if you scroll down about 1/2 way, on the hight there is a chart showing the different types of drivers & what they look like.

Remove the serpentine belt by inserting the end of the serpentine belt tool into the square hole on the belt tensioner and rotating the removal tool clockwise. Unplug the alternator's electrical connector. Remove the bolt holding the positive voltage cable to the alternator using a 3/8-inch ratchet and a metric socket. Remove the positive voltage cable from the alternator.
Remove the alternator bracket bolts using a metric socket connected to a 3/8-inch ratchet. Remove the alternator from the car. Place the new alternator in the mounting brackets and reinstall the mounting bolts using a 3/8-inch ratchet connected to a metric socket.
Reinstall the positive voltage cable on the alternator and tighten the retaining nut using a 3/8-inch ratchet and a metric socket. Plug in the alternator's electrical connector. Compress the serpentine belt tensioner using the serpentine belt tool. Reinstall the serpentine belt according to the belt-routing diagram located under the hood.
Reconnect the negative cable to the battery using the battery terminal wrench. Start the engine and verify that the alternator works.
