      S40 roof rack triangle screwdriver

      Does anyone know of an alternative to this tool?

      https://www.volvopartswebstore.com/p...4/8698556.html

      It's like a little triangle socket.

      Unlike the other tool that is a security torx, I haven't been able to find a generic replacement for this one.

      Any ideas?

      It is nothing more than a ball-end Allen/hex wrench, with a built-in torque limiter to 8N-m.

      Use a long Allen wrench and just don’t over-tighten it.

      Correcting myself... different tool. Sorry!

      Both of mine (V50 and XC90) have Thule-made roof racks that just use the hex-style. My bad.

      Have you tried a socket on it? This triangle piece is 3 sided (duh) and a 6 point socket of the right size might fit this. Only a guess but I would take out a bunch of sockets and keep trying between english and metric until you find one that works. If this doesn't work you can always order a set of triangle sockets off of Amazon or another parts store. Unfortunately I do not know what size this triangle is so you may want to measure yours with a micrometer.

      Why not just a triangle screw driver?

      Ahh it's because the screwdriver is actually the female end. Sorry I know I didn't provide a pic of it.
