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.

I'am trying to change my front pads on my 92 taurus. but i could not figure out how to get the caliper off to put the new pads on. could you tell me what to do?


You need a socket with an allen/hex bit. Not sure about the size of the hex bit you will have to figure that out yourself. There are 2 scews holding the on calipers.

Heres what they look like:

They are on the back of the caliper toward the engine, find the proper size hex socket. They sale a set of the sockets at Autozone for around $10, 3/8 inch drive. Thats the best way to go.

Is there a heater illum bulb in a 2001 VW Beatle


Set the fan speed switch to position #2. Grab the fan speed knob and pull it straight off. It might fight you a bit, but it will come off. Once you have the knob off, lookinside the control unit and you will see the bulb. I have seen these just fall out of the socket on their own.

Rpms speed up faster then bike does. Sounds like clutch slip.


You can adjust it by slackening the cable...unless it has hydraulic operation....Otherwise get it replaced before you do more damage..ie clutch dust and debris in the oil, so dont forget the oil and filter change too.

Interment A/C clutch operation


Thats what it soulds like to me. The low pressure switch is what controls the clutch. Check to ensure you are topped off with refrigerant. If it is, get the low pressure switch replaced.

Head bolt socket type


It is a "triple square XZN" spline tool.  Put any of that into ebay or google and you can find it, or else flag down a tool truck (snap-on, Mac) and ask the saleman for one.
