Ranger Seat Removal

I need to remove the bucket seats from a 2002 Ranger. The bolt is a
star head. I have a #55 socket but it is too small and a #60 is too
large. Three auto parts stores and the local hardware store says
there is nothing in between. Anyone with some helpful ideas?

Don't ask why I need to remove them. Can you say "cat"?

Thanks
Bob S

I am pretty sure that they are the #55 socket but now are we talking
about the regular front seats not the jump seats right? But Id say
check out your #55 is it worn? If not Ill try to do some more
research to help you, Ive got a 94 B3000 (same thing as ranger)
except I have the full bucket and its held by a regular bolt. But
check for wear on the #55 and let me know. - Adixon

Re: Ranger Seat Removal

My 93 Ranger with bucket seats also had a star head which I could not find a
proper socket/allen wrench/torx head. I ended up grabbing the bolt head
with a vise grip and taking it out that way. Not the best way, but it
worked.

Re: Ranger Seat Removal

If not Allen or Torx it may be what is called a Triple Square,
.............. yet another tool to buy!

Re: Ranger Seat Removal

Never heard of Triple Square. Am I right in that it would be a 12
point head? Mine is six point.

Thanks
