I seem to remember using a T-5 or T-6 torx head. It does actually depend on
the manufacturer so its easier to get a small set which has a range of the
Torx bits available. Maplins have a small set of T-5, T-6 and T-7 screwdrivers
for not much; the order code for that is N10BB. You can get smaller, but its
the sort of thing you need to specialist places for; I picked some T-3 and
T-4 bits from Mackays in Cambridge when I lived there.
