I've read somewhere that there is actually a different set of Torx called Torx Plus, or something like that. I regularly remove my rear seat, but have made do with the T55 since the Torx Plus are so hard to find, especially in single bits.
Anybody locate a good source for single T-P bits?
I just removed a seat from a superduty last week. I misplaced the torx bit, so I ended up at sears and bought a large 4 bit torx set in 1/2 inch drive for about $40 and then used a 1/2 inch air impact after spraying the threads from underneath. Whatever size it was, it was bigger than the bed bolts.
Yea, shipping always kills me. If you can use them, take a look at some of the Torx plus sets on the same site. Sort of takes some of the sting out of the shipping on a larger order. Also some other good tools there.
If the shipping wasn't so high, I'd order the one bit, but so far the regular T55 has worked well enough.
Ordering a set would be nice, but the only one they offer with the T55 in it is $110!!! Dadgumit!!
The Ford truck seat and seat belts are installed using a TP55 Torx PLUS, which is a new modification (improvement) over the regular torx. You can buy a OTC socket 3/8 drive on eBay for $14 or the 11 piece set for $35. I remove these bolts almost every week and Torx PLUS are better than torx but I still think it is just a way to make money designing new tools. The torx T55 will work fine if you don't have to use it often.
