Ha, I have the extension bar but not the T10 tool in my kit. Well that is on the list of things to 'fix'. -D▓

I don't see how I can possibly salvage this thing. It's completely round on the inside. Worst thing is that there is no way to really tap the triple square bit in it because there's only about 2" of space between the hood latch release and the bit when it's inserted.

Guys, my car was like this when I bought it, with the 12 pt hole burred up and pretty much useless. I had my mechanic cut the head off a metric allen capscrew and weld it into the stripped hole. I then could use a simple allen wrench or allen socket to hold it. Works fine, hardly noticeable. Sorry, no good pics of it close up.

My 12 pt hole was also burred enough that the Porsche tool would not fit. A 6 pt tool fit and worked fine.

It's not always necessary to remove the nut when changing the belt on these air cooled motors.

I bought a 10mm torx bit (12 points) for 5 euro ( 7 usd) , visited several tool shops... they looked puzzled when I asked it, they had m8 m9 m11 m12 but not m10 unbelievable !!!!
those Porsche engineers are a funny lot !!

now up for a 24mm spanner !!!

p.s. boy ! would I love to have an original 964 toolset.... anyone have one for sale ??

I am so tempted to try that.

With my luck though, I'd end up in the ER with 4 smashed fingers, and a bloody engine compartment.

That guy has a calling...just keep his cell phone on speed dial during those backroad excursions
