Default Torx bits we need?

Anyone know the common torx bit sizes on our bonnes? I had my last set for about a week and used it once and then it disappered & I think I might pick up a good Craftsman set tomorrow but want to make sure I got all the sizes I could possibly need. Not to mention I need it to change my */C belt & pulley if the weather is nice ("cough" nicer) tomorrow.

T15 does most of the inside ones, T47 for seatbelts, maybe a T50 for the shoulder belt, T25 for the airbags and the radio, if you choose to take it apart I think has a T10 somewhere. Other than that i don't think I have used any of the others on my bonneville, granted it is a 93, but i know it is true for 92-99. There might be some of them with one of the Middle values holding the fenders on. Might just be T25s though if I remember right.

i bought a set from autozone for $16 that had all I needed for a 3/8" socket. Not the best of sets, but durable and does the job.

What he says ^^^ should cover almost all of what you'll need. I think that there is an application for the T55, but can't remember where at this moment. I bought the larger ones singly.

The more common ones have already been covered, but you'll also need a T55 for the hub assembly bolts.

The T47 is the one to look for. Usually sets are in increments of 5.. GM decided to be special and make seatbelts 47'*.. 45 will work..it'* a pain

True! I looked for quite a while before I was able to find the T47 at a local Autozone. I had to ask for it and the guy knew of it, so looked in the back until he found one.
