Ooo! This is something I actually know, I had to do that! It took me an hour an a half to figure out how to get those off, I had a hard time finding a tool small enough to get in there

PaulDFixr, when you do get the right one, if you could post a picture of it in this thread for comparison, that would be great.

The proper tool is an E-Torx, nearly every parts store should have a set of them available. Although..an 8mm or was it 6-7mm 1/4" socket tapped on does the trick nicely too.
