Hi,

I tried to be self sufficient but I cant find anything on this. I want to buy the right bits for tightening things on my 997. Does anyone know the Triple Square equiv to T-40 and T-30 (torx)bits?

Any help would be appreciated.

My recommendation would be to buy a metric triple square bit socket set. Trust me, if you plan on doing much DIY on your car you will use all of them. You can get a set for under 30.00 at places like Sears or your local Lowes tool section. I have been buying tools for over 30 years and have never regretted a purchase yet! B)

Autozone sells a three bit set 10mm, 12mm and 14mm by OEM.

I went my local Autozone here in NJ. When I asked them if they had any triple star bits, they looked at me like I had 3 heads and then told me to look in Eisle 4. When I turned the corner and looked up Eisle 4, there were 1,000's of bits hanging. I was in my glories.. 15 minutes later I left empty handed because they didnt have a single triple star bit.

Today I called my local NAPA. I asked them if they had Triple Square bits. There was silence on the other end. Then I said they look like torx bits with double the amount of points. Then the guy said, Ooooh serrated bits, we got them". I will visit the store later with cautious optimism...

FWIW, I just bought this set of triple square sockets from Amazon:

Made in Taiwan, but claims be be S2 steel...seems to be decent quality and worked perfectly for removing the rear seats.

Thanks for that. I looked down the list and found a 4 piece set that has the majority of what I think I will need.

THANKS!!

Found another post that gives more detail on the OEM brand from Autozone.

I'd like to thank all the great folks here who helped me with this.

I ended up calling another AutoZone and they had the 4 pc set in stock so I went and bought them. The bits are more substantial than I thought. They require a 1/2" chuck or Socket. They did the job perfectly!

thanks for everything guys.
