If 5/8'' (16mm) is too big, try 15mm. Sheesh! My gen3 tecs take a 15mm, father-in-law's 98 windstar takes a 16mm. His 01 windstar takes a 13mm. Moral of the story... find one that fits! Ain't rocket science!

Re Shela
"find one that fits"

Good call.

Trying to do anything witout enough tools is a bust. Any handy person should have at least a set of comb wrenches.

I think I will buy a set of larger sockets. I believe I don't have anything bigger than 12mm. They could become handy for other things.
