    I’m trying to change my door locks on my 2010 Leon. But there is some weird torx bit holding the lock in place

    It looks like a torx but has 12 or 15 spines on it

    Anyone have an idea of the size, name or anything

    I’m sure it the same as a vw lock


    Thanks for the help

    No idea lol
    I ordered a wee multi pack of different size see how it goes

    Took me over 2hours get the door back together

    The window rails attach through the door card making it very hard to work at it

    final got this job fixed, after how many months
    total fix for the two doors, £40 for 2 locks front and rear
    £5 for the torx bit set

    so i happy enough
    i messed up one of the torx screws proper bad, had to use vice grips to get it out


    but a easy enough job to do, say 30mins per door, when you know what you are doing

    Sounds like you bought second hand and wont last long,and done a window reg on 2004 and doorskin is removed to get access to window reg and doorlock if needed.
