They are a standard metric screw, 6mm x 15mm or something like that. Go to the hardware store or Home Depot, etc, and match it up. Likely won't be a T27 Torx socket, but who cares?

it is only 83 inch pounds torque so whether it is tor or allen it matters not ( I believe like a hex head is too big with a socket on it), I live in the rust belt and although it is parked in the winter I replace everything possible and acceptable with stainless, everything, and on my pans, auto tranny and the 7mms on the 1.8 oil pan, stainless button head cap screws, bulk at McMaster Carr Supply.
