|mrbigjeep||maybe i should consider one of these torx tools...it was a pain unscrewing the bolts for the first time on my hardtop...but i wont put them that tight again when i put it back on|

on my 99 dodge i had mag-hytec covers thjat had torix drain plugs. when i pulled them off to sell them i broke a snap-on torx off in it.....so i went to a machine shop....he broke HIS torix off too. ended up having to weld a nut to the doggone thing to get it out.
this has nothing at all to do with your windshield...just letting you know i feel your pain

I also broke a torx tip on my windshield bolts.
I was using a el-cheapo torx tip when I broke it.
I went and bought a craftsman tip, and have had no problems with it. they will replace it if I break it.
Also, some guys report needing to use some heat to help loosen the loc-tite on the bolts. Heat the torx tip and let it transfer the heat into the bolt.

|amerijeep||Those torx things bite! I've slowly been replacing mine. As I pull hem out for whatever task, they don't go back in. I use a standard bolt replacement.|

|bluvikng||Using a good brand name torx bit will greatly help.|
