    Hi there,
    I have bought myself a new set of car speakers (front) and went to undo the old ones, and they are held in by the weirdest screw/bolt thingy! It has a round hole in the top of it. What kind of tool do i need to undo it!? Please someone help me :oops:

    No it doesn't look like any of those. I can't even imagine how it can be a screw. It looks like it's almost been 'punched' in with a gun or something. It's just completely round, about a mm in diaphragm. definately not a hex.
    Thanks guys anyway!!

    OK petewood- makes a change from a left hand thread!
    Should have said 'eccentric' (could design a tool for that)
