Hi John,

Unfortunately, beyond the parts list given on the main page, I don't know of any other reliable links. I'd suggest Googling the part, or maybe searching on eBay.

I was only able to unscrew 2 of the Torx screws. They have a pin right in the middle that doesn't allow for the screwdriver to be fully inserted, or at all. The two screws I was able to unscrew must've had a shorter pin than the others.

These points on the head is what we call a security torx screw. You will need the specific T8 or T6 Security Torx Screwdriver to remove these screws.

You can use a small flat blade screwdriver ;-)

If any of the screws are tight, the centre pin may snap, then you can just use a normal Torx bit.
