Hi Guys,

To take apart a Trico SK series wiper motor you have to remove the little bolts securing the top cover to the body. The head of these bolts is a small male oval with flat sides, not a hex or phillips. If you've ever looked at a motor you know what I'm talking about. Does anyone know what the socket is called that fits that bolt head??? I know a small pair of pliers or an adjustable wrench will loosen them..........but I'd like to find the correct socket for these bolts. So does anyone know what that head shape or what the tool to remove them is called?

thanks,
bob

Where can I get Trico tool to loosen screws on wiper motors?? Now use pliers, but someone said could buy screwdriver like tool. Will watch replies to your message for my 48 CC PU. We went through this for my VC a long time ago. Thank you all! Larry

I also used a pointed nose pliers to open them up. Skip

Take an old screw driver that has a shaft diameter slightly larger than the Trico screws. Use a Dremel to cut off the blade leaving the shaft whole, and then use the Dremel to cut a groove in the end of the shaft to take the flat sides of the screw heads. Skip

Thank you Skip. Was trying to figure something complicated. Simple things are very difficult to figure out. Will do with a cheap screwdriver from a discount house. Won't cut Snap-On or Mac. HA HA Thanks again!! Larry

There's a 7 year old post here that Bob in reply #7 offers a tool for $10 postage paid & posts 12 & 14 offer other ideas:
