All

Looking to find out what these are for fixing the roof panels on my 2008 BK Bluebird Caprice as a normal socket not correct.

What do I need to buy, ideally something hat can attached to socket set or a drill attachment

Hi,

From that picture that just looks like a plastic cover that goes over the screws, They are call Tek Screws



What you need to do is with an adjustable spanner is to take one out and get the size, you can order these in most places

Go for the stainless steel ones, ad you won't have to worry about Corrosion or fitting plastic caps, and they last longer than Zinc Plated

Forgot to mention,Once you have bought your screws, you can get a bit for your drill from screwfix

Thanks for the info. I assumed that it was the actual screw / bolt fixing and not a cover for some thing else.

Will have a closer look when next there

Its the plastic cover for the actual screw, just prise it off with a screwdriver and you'll see the actual screw
