Pulled mine off an 01 today.
The only problem I had was the bolt didnt turn so easy at first.
I had to get about 2 full turns before the magnet trick would work.
I started out useing a 6pt socket, after the first turn I couldnt line up the socket with the bolt.
I had to use a 12pt socket.
Finding a 12pt, 3/8 drive, 12mm socket should be an easy thing.
Off all places I found one in a junk box in my 68 year old neighbors garage.
Waiting for the new one to arrive.
Over the hill and picking up speed ! ! !
