New extra-long slim-fit E12 star socket 25 March 2024

Laser Tools has recently introduced an extra-long slim-fit star E12 socket (part number 8718), specifically designed for the PSA EB2 series of engines that use E12 TORX® cylinder head bolts.

On these engines access to the cylinder head bolts is very restricted — even after removal of the camshafts a standard E12 socket cannot be used. The Laser 8718 socket’s slim fit design and length allow the user to easily access the head bolts.

This ½ inch drive socket is 200mm long to give users the required access; it is manufactured from chrome-vanadium steel (CRV 6150) for toughness and shock resistance and finished with black phosphate.

Applications include PSA and BMW group vehicles and is suitable use in PSA EB0 (1.0L) and EB2 (1.2L), as well as BMW M50, M52, M54, S52, M42, and M44 engines.

Now available for purchase from your Laser Tools stockist and online retailers.
