Annette do you have the needed Torx driver to remove them?

Other than the different head type it's a normal screw which you will need to remove. Granted they often have a bit of sealer on them so they can be hard to unscrew.

Cheers Dan, yes had all the Torx driver heads - it was very hard to unscrew and was hesitant with too much pressure. Your guidance much appreciated.


Happy to here you got them loose.
