    They are called 'Tamper-resistant TORX Plus®' and are a bugger to get hold off.



    Google will be your friend in tracking them down

    does anyone know if these are easy to fit? my 02 1.7dti sounds like its in need of one, and i've seen em on ebay for £41.

    also i'm sure i've read somewhere that the ECU needs to be reset after fitting.... or is this BS!!!

    sorry to "thread-crash", but are they as easy to fit as they look? and does the ECU need resetting?
