Yea.. it is just a regular allen wrench. I just grabbed my set of allen wrenches and found the right size. I suppose it might be larger than most people have (i will go out to the garage to see if i can find out what size i used.)

In a B6 it's a 10mm triple square socket. A standard allen may fit but if you try to torque it with 50Nm it may not work that well.

good to know. It actually fits really well (no slop, etc.)

I ordered a 10mm Triple square socket, are you sure this is the right size for the bolt. I have seen some advertisments saying 12mm.
Thanks

I ordered a set and IIRC the 10mm was the correct one. Haven't removed the seat though because it's still too cold outside :lol:

12mm is the triple square for the steering wheel bolt.

Thanks, I am a little worried because I tried using a torx and an 8mm allen wrench with both were a little loose and I might have stripped the screw. If I did, any good Ideas for getting the scew out? I was just going to dremmel two slits in opposite sides and use a slotted screwdriver but I dont know if I will be able to find a slotted screw driver that wide. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I just hope that once I get the 10mm triple square socket in. I will find out that the screw is not stripped [-o<

Get a Torx socket that is a little bit bigger than the stripped alan head bolt, tap the torx into the hole with a hammer (straight) and go as far as the torx will go. With a ratchet quicky loosen the bolt at least to get it moving and you should be home free. That is how I have always got them out, sometimes it works sometimes you break your knuckles, trial and error.
