Tool needed....crunch time

Snap On is no where near me and I need the 12pt 8mm CV socket drive. I need one now where in the world are these things? Google for cheesehead sockets and I get the Green Bay Packers. Snap On Catalog does not show them. I cannot find a single place that has one or is there a more official name for it because I can't find it under cheesehead,allen or hex or Torx.

These sockets must be banned in Iowa

They are under a different name at most auto parts stores...and I can't recall what they are.

I think they are also used on air-cooled VWs, so maybe they are listed under that application.

I had to order my set from the store's catalogue, they didn't stock any.

They're called Triple-square bits.

If you look at one carefully, it looks like 3 square drivers all on top of each other, and offset a little

There was a third name that was neither triple-square not cheesehead. I'll look at my set when I go home today...

I just bought some at my local Carquest. They are made by Lisle if that helps any.

Yeah, aint that something. They are called by many a different name, and RARELY if ever, "cheesehead", anywhere but on these forums, and in the PET software, and FSM. The rest of the world, doesn't recognize it as such.

Lets see, what are all the names they ARE called by? (add to the list if you've heard others). Of course, there are a few different types of configurations of these, ie, socket drive types, and wrench types.

I know there are more than what I've put below, but.........


1: Cheesehead

2: Triple square

3: 12 point internal serrated

4: 12 point hex

5: "VW Velosity socket"

6: ?

I can't tell you how grateful I am I found this on this board. I got a set of VIM Triple squares and striped the 8mm XZN driver after one bolt.
Thanks

i was worried about getting this tool. the guys at motorsports suggested that i crawl under there and make sure the bolts hadn't been changed. sure enough, they were allen heads.

It looks like the Pep Boys triple sq tool is okay.
This is just a messy job. I will never do this again without a lift or pit.

The dust from the clutch disk cakes up on the surfaces and comes down all over you along with any grease and road grim. Wear goggles and a mask. I am sure breathing this stuff is not good. You will be so covered with grim that your wife will not let you into the house.

Okay so I got the car all put back together but now I have no clutch peddle. I bled the line and tryed to adjust the peddle. No luck. I adjusted until the shaft left the peddle pivot. Anyone else have this happen?
