Help!! How do I get this Torx bolt off?
I'm trying to rebuild my 2008 RXP-X Supercharger and I can't find a tool to get this TORX bolt off its the on facing the opposite way from the other two (facing the rear of the ski) There just isn't room to do it with a 3/8 in e8 torx socket...maybe a 1/4 inch but I doubt it. anyone ran into this before?
It's the one right by the plug facing away from you in the pciture kind of hard to see.

Worked for me. But I did replace the Torx bolts with std hex head bolts

Sea Dood: No joy at Oreily's or lowes...did not try Sears they may have the right wrench.
I tried the 1/4 box end and was able to loosen the bolt, but that lead to another issue:
The wrench slipped off and is now sitting under the engine somewhere. I reached around down there with no luck. will try a magnet tomorrow after I get the SC removed.
Any other ideas? is it going to hurt anything?

My tools love that "special place" juuust out of reach, directly under the engine.
I have a handy dandy mirror, flashlight, and magnet for my treasure hunts!
Don't drop any stainless fastners...

Luckily some how I seem to be able to finagle my hand up the motor to get anything I drop or use a coat hanger to snag it.
