Lot of speculation/incorrect information floating around. I removed the front plate bracket today and it was fairly painless. Wanted to share what works and what doesn't. THESE DO NOT WORK, DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY... 11/32 socket Wrong shape, does not grip screw head e.g. http://www.amazon.com/TEKTON-14105-32-Inch-Shallow-6-Point/dp/B000NY79T8 Male Torx drivers The screw head is also male, come on people... Plus, you won't find the correct head shape anyway e.g. http://www.amazon.com/Neiko%C2%AE-10048-Security-Vanadium-100-Piece/dp/B000O5XDOG Female Torx sockets You won't find the correct head shape, the sockets are all hexa-point, but the screw head is penta-point e.g. Neiko® 10070A Torx Bit and External Torx Socket Set, Tamper Proof, T8 - T60 | 35-Piece - - Amazon.com Gator grip sockets The diameter of the socket is WAY too large to even fit into the recess around the screw head, much less try and see if the depressible pins can actually grip it e.g. http://www.amazon.com/Lukher-Professional-Universal-Socket-Adapter/dp/B01DQBC53E Cutting a groove into screw head for a flat blade driver See: Ok, I guess this works, but bringing a rotary blade anywhere near your paint job, ARE YOU CRAZY? BUT, THE FOLLOWING DOES WORK, AND IT'S EASY! 1. Buy yourself one of these: http://www.amazon.com/TEKTON-34233-7-Inch-90-Degree-Pliers/dp/B00YQ7RS1M 2. Make sure you can see the screw. This is key to getting a good grip. My garage is dark so I taped a small mirror to the back of my iPhone and used the rear-facing flash to illuminate the screw. I rested the iPhone face down on the lower lip of the front fascia so I could see what I was doing in the mirror. 3. These 90-degree bent pliers let you grip the penta-point screw head at 4 and 8 o'clock to turn the screw. I found they were not torqued at the factory very tightly, so it was easy to loosen them. I did a few turns with the pliers, and then could unscrew the rest of the way with my fingers. Attached are detailed pictures of how the pliers should grip the screw head. Good luck!
