    Hello everyone.
    Me again! I am attempting to swap stereos on my '85 New Yorker. The problem
    I am having is that I can not find anything thing to remove the two screws
    that hold the stereo in place. It' got a round head with three indentations
    about 120 degrees apart on the head.

    I tried most of my local auto parts and they looked at me like I was on
    something.

    HELP!!

    Get out your trusty moto-tool and cut a slot in it already.

    After receiving info from Steve B., on the tool needed, ( Eaton
    tamper-resistant fasteners Socket) and it's unavailability except through
    Snap-On, I pulled out my drill and drilled a few holes on the plastic hold
    down brackets. Then broke the brackets off and used small vise grips to
    remove the hold down screws.

    In my haste, I accidentally tapped the rear view mirror with my forehead and
    it popped off.

    Anyone know. if those rear view mirror repair kits will work in cold
    weather. (I'm near Chicago) and it's about 30 degrees here.

    pick any of them up at the local autozone, run your car, set the fan & heat
    on high, direct it at the front winshield..... wait til it warms up.

  5. Miller Tool makes the little socket that removes those screws. It is tool #
    C-4537.
    Miller can be reached at: 800-801-5420. Be prepared to pay a bunch, but at
    least they have it.

    Good luck,
