Torx screws on front passenger seat.

Does anybody know the size of the torx screws that bolt the passenger seat to the floor in the Ford E450 cab? I'm thinking that I may install a swivel base for the front seat in my Lexington 265DS, but I need to remove the present seat base first. My set of torx wrenches only go up to size T40, which is way too small. I don't want to buy a whole set of new larger size wrenches if I can get away with buying just one (preferably a socket wrench), but I have no idea what size to buy. Any idea?

Torx goes to a T-100.
I would just hit the Pawn shops and buy a single.
T-60, 55, 50. 45.

Yes, but I live in a small town that doesn't have a pawn shop!

The last time I took out our front seat in our 255GT I used a T-55.

Yeah, thanks guys. The manager of my local hardware store (who doesn't stock torx wrenches bigger than T40!) said that when he used to work in the automotive trade he sort of recollected that Fords used T55's for their seats. So T55 it is! I don't want to buy a range of sizes 'cos it'll probably be the only time I'll ever use it!

Quick little tip---
You can use a regular hex allen wrench to remove a torx head bolt. Cannot do the reverse, torx to hex.
Just find the size of 6 sided hex wrench that fits the torx head and your good to go. There is no cross ref. as to what fits, but as an example a 3/16 inch allen wrench will remove a T-40 torx.
Good to know in an emergency.

Yes, I considered that. I have about 3000 Allen wrenches that I have accumulated over the years, including what I considered to be fairly big ones, but to no avail! None of them fitted! Alas!

Bob, if it is a T-55 torx, try a 9mm metric allen wrench. It is the one you need.

Well, I'm on vacation at the moment, far away from my vast collection of Allen wrenches, but when I get home I'll rummage through my tool box for another look! Thanks for the tip, Grumpy.
