what the heck are these

Ok trying to do a clutch rebuild.
I have bolts that look like this on the upper part of the bell housing that hold a bracket of sorts on driver and passenger side.
the bolt head doesnt look like a bolt head, looks like some star pattern bolt head.

[IMG][/IMG]
I havent seen one like that before
.
Do I have to get those off to free the trans from the engine?
All the other bolts came off easily, these two I cant get a good grip on.
I am near the point of having to put it back together and just hand a pile of cash to the stealership to do this job.

Help ASAP, I am trying to do this right now.

Thanks

They are external torx heads....E12. Sears has them.
Yes, they have to come out..they are just bolts with a different head. You may find that you can get a certain size 12 point socket to tap on them if you don't have access to a store.

Yep E-12 extended-torx for the transmission, I got mine from NAPA. The transfer case uses an E-10 size.

Tap the scocket on there with a hammer before you try to remove them. You can lower the tranny some for more room and use a long extension. If you have a impact wrench, that is the easy way to take them out.
