MAF removal question

'98 3.6L V-6

I've got the MAF exposed. Removed one T-20 TORX. But it looks like the
second bolt has some sort of gray cap that fits in the head that
prevents me from getting the bit into the slots. The other bolt had no
such covering and came right off.....

Anyone know about this?....

Re: MAF removal question

Epoxy... kind of a "double tamper-proof". I use a small pair of vise grips
to remove and install these.
