Mein Auto: '04 525i M54 with 6HP19Z
Does any know what is the torx size of the 24xBolts on the plastic sump of the auto trans on E60 6HP19.

According to the link below it should be using T40;

According to BMW part number, there is no information;
Torx screw - 24 11 7 552 108 - M6X28,5

According to the bolts on my sump pan on the car, it is T27.

Reason for this question, when I already know that T27 is what I have on my vehicle - I am planning to replace the pan and oil on the my trans and 14 bolts seems to have its torx teeth #@#$#@ by previous INDY's, so I will need to replace these bolts. The new bolts which I will buy, I need to know the size of Torx bit so I can by that tool as my hollow Torx bit T27 broke while I was trying to un-screw the pan

Also, what tools was used to open the fill plug, I know it needs 8mm Hex socket, but mine won't fit since there is very less space and the thread above says to use L-shape tool, what is L-shape tool?
