So I am trying to get the seats out of my 2000 Silverado, as I broke the back on the drivers side, doing "extra curricular activities".

I've researched what the E-torx are supposed to be, which Is a 18 & a 20. 18 is too big for the rears, too small for fronts. Nobody locally sells a 20.

I tried regular sockets, 6, 8, and 12 point. None work. I could get the rears out, but nut the front (the one sunk Into the track), it just slips. I called the dealer to get the sockets, and they say my trucks breakdown says I have bolts in the front, and don't know what sockets I need. Dead end.

Can anyone tell me for sure what I need, or how you got yours out?

torx sockets
I read some more and it says I need a 20 and a 14. So I am going to get a 14, which is easy, but finding a 20 Is like impossible

no help on actual size but i used a basic deep socket to get my front seats out when i installed my console in my '00.

Pretty sure there is a write-up on here somewhere. Search this section

I was able to use regular sockets to remove the seat bolts. I went to get some new seats for mine not knowing/looking first what I would need. IIRC they were 15 mil and 19 mil. One was a 6 point and the other a 12 point, but I don't recall which was which.

How does one break a seat back by masturbating?

Seriously, all I could think is who fucks on the drivers side with the steering wheel getting in the way.
One time I was in drivers seat and the girl's ass honked the horn. I jested for five minutes at least.

I went to harbor freight a picked up what looks like a metric spline set. It's by Pittsburg and on the package says removes all kind of bolts. I pulled the seats out of my 2010 with them no issues
