What torx size for engine mount?

Post by Ramc4 »

There are a few torx (star) and female torx(inverse star) bolts on my Citroen C4 2006 coupe.

For example the engine mount and manifold, probably other bolts also.

Hoping it's only one or two sockets I need instead of buying a whole set.

Does anyone know what sizes they are i read T18 online but there doesn't seem to be a T18, there a t15 and T20 for example?

T18 is very small, I got a set for about 25 squid ranging from about 10 to 55, with Cits and Pugs, if you're doing your own mechanics, it's worth it. They are everywhere.

Just buy a set, one like this is perfectly satisfactory for home use at only £6.90

I've used mine at least a few dozen times over the years and its been fine.

The only thing I wouldn't use it on is Cylinder Head Bolts, but for those, you can use the Torx from a set like this to ascertain what size it is (without turning it) then buy a single, quality bit
