Doing what I’m about to say you may need to get new screws once done. I’ve had an issue at work with striped Penelope screws on iPhones ( because people use wrong/crap screw drivers) and with no other way, I took a “one time” use Penelope screw driver so if need be could throw it away and put some adhesive bonder or maybe could use superglue and dap a tiny amount on screwdriver, let sit in place on stripped screw once harden you should be able to unscrew it out. Since I used a type of adhesive bonder there is a DeBonder to get the screw driver and screw apart. Sorry for the long reply. Hope works out for you mate.

The screws are 5-points Torx Security, size 15; however the shaft of my multibit seems too fat to fit in the plastic canal.

Which multibit (precision?) screwdriver should I get? The canal seems to be just 8mm wide and that's going to be a challenge with these short Torx security tips (I can't find the long version, I think they don't make it).

The unique Torx design means that there is less likelihood that the screw head will be stripped or the screwdriver damaged. Torx screwdrivers can last up to ten times longer than regular screwdrivers especially they are stripped.

In your case, you may need a T5 Torx Screwdriver.

Kindly check out methods for unscrewing a stripped one.

Please do keep me updated, good luck!
