Removing steering wheels and airbag from an AU

I'm trying to swap steering colums on an AU. To do this I have to swap the steering wheel and switchgear over. There's two fasteners holding the airbag to the steering wheel and these are not Torx or any other iteration I have on hand. I hear it's a special fastener but I'd be interested in knowing what the tool is called so I can get a hold of it to do the job.

Anyone know?

Re: Removing steering wheels and airbag from an AU

There was a post here, or over on fordmods in the last couple of days, something about tork screws or something or other. Do a quick search. They are a five sided security bit only available for Ford dealers.

Re: Removing steering wheels and airbag from an AU

Falkeen has one, and he is conveniently located near you, AP. Send him a PM.

I think I have the Ford spares part number if you want it - they are around the $65 mark to buy, though. Pm me if you want it (the part number).
