    Spline most likely, got a pic Sam?

    If you've used torx then possibly you've fecked the spline holes, show us your bolts so can advise.

    Upload image to say photobucket & then this give syou a web address of the image location, then start a post & click on the little box with mountain inside above the text box & then paste the link into the window, then image will link to this page.
