    Need a screwdriver bit - an odd one

    Just fitting a chrome rear boot grab bar for my sis in law to her rover 25, and have discovered the screws holding it in are like nothing I have ever seen in tool bit sets.

    Its a triangulat bit - with quite pointed ends - resembling a mercedes badge if that make sense. Has anyone any idea what bit it is I need - or if anyone has one kicking about I can borrow - post it - post it back...?

    the middle one is the one I need, but considering this is the first time I've needed one in over 15 years of car fiddling, I cant justify the whole set really....

    yeah.. wont be much... but you can buy good qaulity single bits... go to you rlocal iron mongers or old skool tool shop.

    But i would buy the set if i were you, adding new tools to the collection is always good
