I need to remove my rear seatbelts from my 69 Mustang and am not sure what type of driver I need remove the bolts. Can anyone tell me what I need (and what size too)? Thanks.

Not sure what size the tool is - but I do know most auto stores should have it. I had to buy a new one recently (the bolts on my old Boss 302 were rusted and I broke the tool in 2!!) - the auto store had the tool listed for seat belts but I think it is used for other purposes too.

You can buy a set of those to fit yoru 3/8 ratchet. The dont' cost much and you'll need them again some day. In a pinch, I've jambed a big flat screwdriver in it and turned it with a crescent wrench or vice grips.

Keep the shiny side up and the greasy side down.

I bought a cheap set of Torx drivers to fit on a 3/8" rachet at K-Mart. They come in handy every so often, especially if you ever work on newer cars.

Be careful about buying cheap Torx bits. I bought an Autozone set, and broke it off in the first seatbelt bolt I tried to take off.

The torx bits can vary greatly in quality. I have more problems with the cheap one piece torx bits that you would find at Autozone or Advance. I have found craftsman bits that are in a 2 piece unit where the torx bit fits in a separate socket have held up much longer and are far stronger than the one piece bits that bend and bend and bend some more. There are many good quality bits out there and I've busted almost every type. The nice part with the craftsman type is they are quaranteed. Get the ones that have the inserts if you can find them.

Signed tired of cheap torx bits that break...


Keep those Ponies rolling.. don't crush them!!!
