I agree that the right tool for the job is always best, but in my situation, I had the understanding that the stud should come off with the nut (as others had reported had worked for them). Since I didn't have the right torx socket (or any female torx sockets for that matter) I tried a regular hex socket (can't remember the exact size now, but it fit tight) and figured if it didn't come out easily, then I'd go buy the torx set.
It turns out that the stud came out easily w/o any damage to the head, so I was lucky on that one.
