Benton14 You can also use a deep T-handle socket. I think is more easy to do it with a t-handle because it make easier to get access to the nut. And remember don't drop the nut in the sheet metal but if you drops it then try to take it up with a magnet. Hope this helps.

Slammed_2.0 3/8" drive socket 10MM deep well will work. Hell my 1/4" deep sockets are about 4 inches deep.

arjay219 I have a 1/4" drive set and the 6 point deep sockets I found wouldn't have been long enough. Would I have to get a socket wrench of bigger drive size (say 1/2") because those sockets for 11mm seemed to be deeper/longer in length.

I'd hate to buy one socket and an expensive socket wrench of bigger size

A7xschecter6661 pretty sure it's a 10mm deep socket, you can get it anywhere.
If you don't have them buy yourself a set
Harbor freight, Sears, walmart, advance auto etc.

bedoya_d94 Get a deep socket from Home Depot or Walmart.. And yeah it should be 11mm hex.

Kipp just go to sears or whatever tool store and get a deep socket. there are only three general kinds; shallow, semi deep, and deep. once you get the nuts off it will most likely be kinda snug in there and will take some force (not too much) to get it to pop loose.

arjay219 How deep of a socket? where could i get one? It looks like it will have to be a 11 mm hex end as well.

Also-ran It'll take a "deep socket" to get to it.
