    Going to install my cruise at the weekend, anyone know the size and particularly the length of the torx driver needed to remove the steering cowl ?
    Any other tool advice appreciated !
    Thanks

    Removal of the lower cowling requires a T9 long-shafted (steady on..) screwdriver.

    Other tools you'll need are:

    T25 Screwdriver
    T30 Screwdriver
    10mm socket with ratchet
    M12 Spline Tool with ratchet (think T55 also works)
    Small flat headed screwdriver
    Trim removal tools (or just be ****** careful)

    Enjoy!

    That's great thanks
    Hope I can find a long shaft torx driver locally, mine are only the short bits on a driver, probably too thick to get access

    I got one from Halfords but still had to trim the plastic/rubber back on the handle to make it long enough.

    Yep, the Halfords one just needs a little of the handle taken off but works fine.

    Yeah, I had to take a bit of the plastic covering off the screwdriver with some snips -- did the job nicely.
