    10mm socket is what I use on a long 1/2" extension... you also need to use something (large screwdriver or similar) to stop the prop turning while you do it... 3 x bolts as previously mentioned

    Thought it was a female torx drive socket????
    Think it can be done with a 10mm multi point socket but the proper tool is a torx......
     
  9. No it's not a Torx

    10mm 12 point socket without a doubt. Do it from above with the tip removed, its a doddle.

    I used a 3/8" ratchet and moved the car back and forward to turn the prop and get access.
