I want to get the plastic cover off the top & bottom of the sterring column on my 97 with auto. I ground down the outside diameter of a 3/16 and 1/4in nut driver so they would fit in the hole but neither will turn the bolts. Local tool shops dont seem to carry anything smaller than a 5mm nut driver.
what have you used to get those bolts out?
I will have to get a flashlight and a pick to see if there is a hole in the center of those bolts that are up in the long skinny plastic tube.
when I first looked i didn't see the star shaped hole that would have me looking for my torks drivers.
there are 4 torx holding it on there, one in the center towards the steering wheel(easiest to see), one on the left and right of that one (they are up in these little holes youll see there), the last one is on the right side of the column just to the steering wheel side of the gear shift lever (its up in a hole also), they all go in from the bottom and the 2 pieces just snap together, hope this helps

Ok you guys were right. after putting on the drug store cheeter glasses and giving those holes a shot of compressed air to blow out the dust, I did see the star shaped hole in those bolt heads.
A T-15 driver got them right out.
I am grateful for your advise and feel silly at the same time.
