Torx size

Post by Neil & Amanda on Sun Dec 11, 2016 9:41 am

Hi, I have a 1998 Executive.

I need a new habitation battery, does anyone know what size of Torx socket I need?

I have never had to use Torx so a full set seems a waste!

Thanks

If it's anything like the common TX's on my car it'll most likely be a TX40. But to buy a single socket will mean to trip to a tool shop or motor factor and no doubt it'll cost much more than a set, which although not top quality, are available from almost any high street poundshop type outlet. Most T handle or allen key type sets are from TX10 to 50, and that should cover anything you might come across.

Personally I'd never buy tools from a poundshop. When I have in the past screwdrivers twist at the slightest amount of pressure. I've got a set of torx and screwdriver bits plus small sockets that I got from Lidl. Not always stocked though but usually Aldi and Lidl have something similar every few weeks or Halfords may be a bit dearer but usually good quality.

I also have a full set of expensive TX sockets, being in the business, but Neil was not exactly taking a cylinder head off.. I also bought a TX set from a French supermarket when touring and didn't have access to main set. I think they cost 8 euros, I carry them all the time now and they've proved excellent value for money. I seldom use the expensive set now..

Just been in Aldi. They have a set of screwdriver bits , torx and a ratchet handle for £12.99. Good set to keep in the van.
