    Default Most used tools

    I have been thinking to add to my reasonable set of ‘car’ tools. Having over the year’s accumulated sets of sockets Metric, AF & WW numerous ring & open-ended spanners etc. I have only one Torx socket & a ¼” drive set of small Torx male bits. It is a fact on the ’Vectra C’ to change filters & remove the bumpers in the process of small mod's additional Torx tools are required. I would be interested to find fellow forum members recommendations on ‘the most used bits’ realising in full additional sets they are all there. This may also be a useful start to a new owner of a ‘C’.

    Please note It is not my intention to carryout any major work. Cheers

    T20 is the most common size for removing all the screws that hold on trim etc., larger sizes when removing things like seats etc.
