Removing battery problem, screwdriver doesn't fit.

History

I'm replacing the front display glass on a mid 2009 Macbook Pro 15". When we get to the second step, and use the torx T6 screwdriver (that we purchased from iFixit) it suggests to open the selected screws, it does not fit. It does, however fit the screws I've highlighted in yellow. Is it an error in the manual, or am I using the wrong screwdriver.

I'm using this guide:

MacBook Pro 15" Unibody Mid 2009 Front Display Glass Replacement

Picture of screws the screwdriver works with:

Any help would be appreciated!

Those are five point security screws. A ordinary torx will not remove them. I can't tell the size from the picture but this is what a #8 looks like: TR8 Torx Security Screwdriver

I got tied of all the changing security screws so I got this to handle them all: http://www.amazon.com/Neiko-100-Piece-Se...
