Damn "special" tools!!

I got a new MAF sensor and went to change it, so it disconnected everything only to realize I need a special screwdriver bit to removed MAF sensor (star shaped with a hole in the center).

It pisses me of when manufacturers do this, why make it simple when you can make it complicated..

And they are not unique to automotive stuff.... Depending on the mood and or price of the part it's holding down, I track down the correct bit, or a swift smack with a punch on the center spike clears it right up for a regular torx bit.
