PostSubject: Stripped nut   October 26th 2011, 2:09 pm

The most pain in the ass things to deal with. Removing my DP this morning, and couldnt get the right angle on this nut. So end up stripping it. But figured out I can just take the whole bolt off by unscrewing it. Can anyone tell me what socket will fit on this? without stripping it?

almost looks like a reversed torx, you can either go out and buy one or if its not too fucked try using a 12-point socket that fits it. has to be very snug or it wont work so good.
