Thanks If a 5/8" fit inside the Torx screw, you likely need a T80 bit (yikes!) Here is one at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/59TX-T80-Dr-Torx-Screwdriver-Socket/dp/B000JP2SZ6 and it uses 3/4" drive. I won't shock you with the price, but a T70 socket costs about 10% of what this costs (also at Amazon). Here is the chart I used to determine the size http://www.wihatools.com/Marketing/torxspec.htm. I hope this helps. Good luck. Walt
