If it'* never been off before, it will be tight. You really have to give er to get it off sometimes. A strong impact helps.

Get a flashlight and peer into the three slotted holes. There will be threaded holes in there.

If you don't get M6 bolts, you'll screw it up and never get it off. If you are that lost, I suggest buying a service manual of some sort.

This isn't something you can take a chance on.
