What are these bolt heads? They have 12 points a 13mm broke some of them loose but not all I have some torx 6 point sockets that won't work. Are they a torx or are they something else. I am trying to track down a noise in the drive train it really sounds like it is coming from up front though.

It's a 12-point 12mm bolt head. I've got a special Snap-on socket that I use, but you don't need that, any 12-point socket/wrench will do.

Heat em up with a torch and they'll break free pretty easily. They have loctite on them from the factory

Thanks Spoonfed I 'll have to get a 12point and give it a try. I thought about heating them but was worried about the transfer case seal on the front one.

WD40 or Breakaway, works good.
