Removing instrument cluster

I have a remote trunk release that is not working. I know there are some fixes here on the website but what tool is needed to remove the 3 overhead screws. They loke Phillips head but none of mine fit snuggly and I do now want to ream the head so I can't put them back in. Is it a special tool or just a different size phillips.
Thanks in advance!
