I am trying to change my power steering pump as it has failed on me. However, I am unable to take it out of the car due to 2 ridiculous bolts. Can anyone identify what tool fits in the bolt next to the hex (below and to the right)? I have tried a T-50 Torx and it stripped the bolt a little and I also tried a large hex which did the same. It looks like a 12 point bit, but does that even exist? Someone please help!

If its a 12 point, Napa and Auto Zone should carry a pack of 3-4 different sizes. I honestly dont recall my 3.0 having this bolt for the pump.

Anyone know what size this triple square is? I've already got my car dismantled in the garage but of course I don't have a triple square.

Asshole engineers. What was wrong with using the other allen or torx bolts?
