Default what to use to adjust headlight?

On my 2002 SL1 I have stripped out the torx inner hole on the up/down stalk for the drivers side headlight adjustment. Is there such a thing as a torx socket that would fit over the outer serrations? If so which should I buy? Or any other suggestions before I strip the outer serrations (whatever you call it?)

Pretty sure you're supposed to use an E-7 rather than T-anything. Could be wrong on the E7, pretty sure that's what I used on the new headlights to the '01 SC2 I had.

The proper way to fix a S-Series automatic is to replace it with a manual

Our 95 actually came with a few red screw drivers which were marked "headlight vertical" and "headlight horizontal"

That being said, lube the crap out of the adjustments and use a good e7.

My eBay headlights use a Phillips. They also broke very quickly as the gear is weak.
