use a 1/4" socket works just fine no need to go buy extra stuff.

I believe he means removing the cap... not the bolt
I use a custom heated and bent flat head screwdriver Find your crappiest flat head in your tool box, torch that baby red hot... then bend the tip of it in a vice. Works great!

I just did an oil change on my 06 rxt and gtx. I used. Standard socket to remove the bolt (but have order to torex sockets online for future - it was cheap and always good to have the right tools). The cap was easily pulled off on each by hand with a little twisting and pulling. No tool needed. Make sure you lube the o-ring before reinstalling as this help with the removal next time.

Before I remove the bolt, I rock it back and forth a little. This brings an edge up, and ya just grab it..
