Want to bet? Actually there may be a special tool to get to it easily. Take a look at the Snap-On catalog to see all the special tools designed specifically for only one car. There is a long history of companies doing strange things to ensure that you have to come to the dealer for very basic repairs. When Allen keys became common the Torx system was developed. I believe either Ford or GM first used these on headlights. Then, when Torx tips became available, the protected Torx appeared. You will see these on cable boxes and computer power supplies. I guess something new will be used, now that the protected Torx tips are available. --------------2EB34A161A6FFDBC257F063A Content-Type: text/html; charset=us-ascii Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit <!doctype html public "-//w3c//dtd html 4.0 transitional//en"> <html> <font color="#3333FF">David Wilson wrote:</font> <br><font color="#3333FF">Even Saab cannot be daft enough to expect you to take off the plastic</font> <br><font color="#3333FF">undertray, then take off the whole bumper (if so, how?) just to change a fog</font> <br><font color="#3333FF">lamp!!</font> <p>Want to bet?
