confused Seats and safety belts

Help needed to remove the seats and one safety belt on my '93 EB2.

The bolt heads are a special looking allen head. A star shape.
Any clues anyone?

Does Super Cheap Auto Crud sell a socket for it or something?

I don't know if it is the same kind that is used on the door catches mounted to the inside of the b pillar for the front doors. When mine needed adjusting, I went to Kmart and bought a $20-odd multi-purpose screwdriver kit that made the job very easy. It came with countless screwdriver and star-shaped (etc) fittings. Not a heavy duty tool, but it's come in handy more times than I can remember.

the star shaped ones are called torx(sp?) bits. you should be able to get a range of sizes in a range of different forms (socket, drillbit, L-key etc) from any good tool place as well as kmart etc.

they are a good thing to have in the tool kit now as they are being used more and more in heaps of different applications.

Seats and safety belts

Thanks all...

I got a set of torx drivers on Sunday and used 'em to do the safety belts mounts and seat mounts - same size - and the door handle mounts -smaller.

Carpet/seat swap looks good.
