Default Seat Torx Bit Size

Can anyone tell me the Torx bit size used to remove the bolts at the rear of the front seat tracks on a 2001 Monte?

I hope the below helps ?
All you need is a T-45Star bit or "hex" bit screw driver. u can get a set of them with this size at any auto parts store or home improvement store for roughly $10 or so.
(T-45star bit)



So to take out your seat out, i would recommend a little WD-40 to loosin it up , but there will be 2 Bolts on the back of the rail. This is where ur T-45 comes in use.
(2 Bolts on back of rail)



Now that your Bolts are out, your going to want to unhook any electronics (*airbags, heatedseats, seatbelt alert) from underneath your seat. It may be easier to have a 2nd person tilt thes eat forward for you so you can get at them easier.

After that, either use the lever on the back and make the seat lean as far forward as possible or remove the headrest (tilting the seat forward is way easier) and then lean the entire seat and mount forwards. There are 2 Hooks in the front. So lean the seat forwardas far as possible, then pull the seat towards the backend of the car and it should come right out.
(2 Hooks, P.S., these are going to be covered with plastic covers up front)


For your new seat just do everything in reverse order (having a helper to get the hooks back in is recommended).
