I have an ABS Anti-lock light that came on. I'm cleaning the wheel sensors by removing them from the backing plates, and cleaning them (by wiping the debris off with a clean rag), and then reinstalling. The front wheels went well with a number E-12 torx set female socket being used. The rear wheels have some other multi- headed bolts. The #12 torx socket is too small and the #14 is too big-- one would assume I need a #13-- My little bit of research on the WEB makes me think there is no #13--- any ideas of what to use ?? Thanks,

Update--
As near as I can determine, a 12 PT 7 or 8 MM (metric, of course) socket is required. If I can ever find one, I will remove those sensor bolts and throw them away as far as I can.

I cleaned the front sensors, reset the computer by disconnecting the negative chassis battery cable, and test drove the rig. I am happy to report all is well now. The front sensors had dirt and crud on them. At least the light is out and I feel more at ease. I'll do the rear ones when I can find the correct 12PT metric socket.

I am also happy to report my first impression on the Ultra Power upgrade I just had installed. I can now cruise around on the back roads, 35-40 MPH, at 1800 RPM. Before it was always around 2800 RPM. It is also now more responsive. Time will tell on any fuel improvement. It runs great!!

The rear sensor bolt heads are 12pt, 8mm, and I found a socket to fit them at Car Quest for $2.45. Job complete.
