gmc seat nut 2005

Anyone know what the star shared nuts holding the seat rails to the floor use for a socket. 5/8 too big and 9/16 too small. They are really tight and I suspect the star shape socket is needed to get them out. I'm installing a Jotto Desk, I hope.

Sounds like a 15MM? 12 point...

Probably Whitworth. JUST KIDDING!

No, the above post is correct, it should be metric.

Female 5/8 torx did the job. Got a whole set from the local NAPA. Good I did because I found I also needed the 1/2".
