I really do not understand why this bolt is so badly angled and how it was installed.

Please advice your tips.

Thanks

Thanks. All I have is a gear spanner but it is too big. I am even thinking about cut a ring from socket and weld with a handle.

A four piece Torx ring spanner set only costs a few pounds.

A 1/4 sae box end wrench works fine, there is little torque needed to unfasten it.

I use a torx on the end of a small universal joint and an extension.

Will try saw box wrench if still can bite on it. Had chance buying e torx wrench but did not buy. Now stuck in here. Others are easy without any trouble.

I had one smart I was deleting the EGR on and the bolt was so buggered I ended up just welding a socket on to break it free.

I weld internally chamfered hex nuts to them. Cheaper than sockets. The heat from the weld is sufficient to get even the most stubborn bolt loose.
