Hi y'all, I'm not sure what to call the screwdriver I'm looking for. It's similar to an anti-theft license plate screw driver. A star bit with a hole, but small enough for electronics.

Reason being, as I'm sure any M17x owner is *aware, the A/C adapter is insanely cumbersome and heavy, and the connection from the adapter going to the Laptop (bluelight side), has pulled right out of the seal. The black wire has begun to fray and the jacket is peeling.

I'd like to get inside the adapter to do repairs, like hot glueing the wiring into the exit seal, etc. Then reassemble. That's it, but need that darn screw driver.

Thanks!

I think I found what I need. 6 point star TORX with hollow center. We'll see. I'll take some pics of the repairs I'm doing, if anyone cares, or has the same problem with this bulky A/C Power Adapter.
