Tool for coil bolt and number of oil drains on 08S

Recommended Posts

I started to do maintenance today on my new-to-me 08S. Replaced all window wipers, particle filter, and air filters. I was going to do the spark plugs but don't know what kind of tool to use to get the bolts out that hold the coils in. I've attached a pic (sorry it's blurry). What is this?

Also, I was going to change the oil and filter but I don't have a T50 socket and also am not sure if there are two oil drains on the 08S. I've attached a pic of that too. It looks like there are two drains, but the smaller one doesn't seem to have a crush washer and doesn't look to be the same material as the larger one.

Please advise,

Thanks,

Doug

I did some research and found that the coil bolt is a Torx socket; didn't know there were sockets in addition to Torx drives. I'll have to pick some up.

Still unsure about the oil drains for an 08S; anyone?

I did my plugs yesterday - you can use a normal 10mm hex socket for that bolt (which is a torx E female)

The tool which I had to order to get the job done was a 12mm Triple Square to get the upper engine mount torque arm out of the way.

What year is yours? Mine appears to be a regular bolt & nut.
