The bolts the hold the airbag module on are called security torx. Its a torx with a post int he center(This will block a normal torx bit from going in). There is a couple ways to deal with this.

Easiest: bust out a vise grip pliers and grab the head of the bolt and break em loose with that.

Or: If you have the correct regular torx you can use a small flat bladed screw driver and a hammer and chisel the little pin out of the center(it will break off easy) then un screw via normal torx bit


Lastly buy the correct size security torx bit.

Engine hoist assembled today. Pictures for memories/documentation sake. Hopefully I can yank that thing out this weekend.

Really hoping I can keep this momentum up, but weíll see. Made some more progress tonight.

Engine and transmission are out!




Next goal is to get everything else out needed for the swap so I can get rid of this wagon. Iíll make a list of the things I need and anyone can chime in and help make corrections.
