It's just a regular bolt.

I chanced the cold, and got my head under there. 13mm standard. Thank you!

This one is a 6pt.

Well then my memory has possibly lapsed, I've only had mine off twice and I could have sworn they were 12 point but perhaps I confused it with my buddies Honda element I did a few weeks back. Sorry for the bad info, even though at 14 ft lbs or whatever the 12 point wrench would work.

There may be one on the 241OR t-case which I will check tomorrow, but it's not common to pull that one since there isn't a SYE conversion for it.

I wish they would use 12 point heads on the CV to driveshaft bolts at both ends.

Since I'm planning to keep this vehicle for the duration I will likely have the opportunity to get quite familiar with most of those, as well as many other unfamiliar components. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
