This is my first post on the bonny forum, I have enjoyed reading this forum for quite some time...
I have just come across ANOTHER example of *GM brillance* on my 2001 SSEI, [which is the use of these !$##***!! Torx Head Bolts !.] .
The idler pulley for my supercharger gave up the ghost and threw the belt off, and Lo and Behold, I found Torx head bolts on the idler AND tensioner pulleys.
After replacing the idler pulley, I ATTEMPTED to install the new belt by myself..
[If anybody out there that has done this job can probably understand], GM has taken a simple one man job and turned into a [2 man, 5minute job], simply due to the use of these Torx head bolts..
Does anyone know why GM is using TORX instead of just a regular bolt that you can use a socket ???
I know, I know, Torx are probably CHEAPER...
