Yep, that'* how I figured it out, reading others posts here about it. The hardest part was tracking down the Torx bits with the little hole in the middle. Found 'em at Checker Auto Parts. Set of 6 or 7 different sizes of them, a couple of square dive bits, and I think one or two other wierd driver bits for less than 10 bucks....

When I tried taking mine off to clean the throttle body, the screw head snapped off. Now, only one bolt holds my MAF sensor in place.

Guess the torque guns at the plant were set WAYYYY to high that day!

In the assembly process, the operators use air driven torque guns to screw components together. Very common...

I'd bet more on dissimilar metals bonding together. Aluminum and steel do that really well.

Pull off the TB, drill and pull it out...you really want two screws holding it in.

MOS..they have the security screws on them? 95 had regular torx. Interesting. But I got the security bits as well.
