Can the OP update us on how this went?

Any snags or easy out/in?

Thanks

For my 2008 the tool is a Torx Plus TP55. It is different from a regular Torx. A T55 torx can probably be made to work, but it's loose. The TP55 has heavier splines, and it fits the bolt head like a glove. OTC and Lisle make them, probably others.

Update: I bought one from NAPA for $11. Carlyle brand

My 2013 uses a t55 torx plus. My workshop manual also says that if you put in a new RCM (restraint control) or any other kind of module that it needs to be programmed. Since you are swapping did you check on the donor vehicles VIN number to make sure your airbag will function properly?
