Hard Top Tools

I've had the same problem I've being seeing from others about the hardtop being stuck to the body. I'm going to attempt to get mine loose today. The one thing is, where do I find a #40 Torx head driver. Home depot is really the only major hardware store I have around me and the biggest they had was 30. Any help is appreciated.

You should be able to pick up a set at any auto supply store

Both Walmart (Stanley Tools) and Lowe's (Kobalt) have them sold in a set.

Is the seal attached to the top or the body of the jeep. It was recommended in another post that I use some PB Blaster to loosen up the seal between the top and the body.

I got my set for $10 from Harbor Freight, They will ship to you if you order the internet. You do have the internet where ever you live, right?

The seal is attached to the top. Just push up in the front if it is stuck a bit. It will come loose. No big deal.
