Laser Tools has introduced an extra-long slim-fit star E12 socket, 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 socket (part number 8718) has a slim fit design and length to allow the user to easily access the head bolts.

This 1/2" drive socket is 200mm long to give the required access; it is manufactured from chrome-vanadium steel (CRV 6150) for toughness and shock resistance and finished with black phosphate. It is equivalent to Opel/Vauxhall OE number EN-52203 and BMW OE 11 2 250.

Applications include: PSA and BMW group vehicles. Engines include: PSA EB0 (1.0L) and EB2 (1.2L), and BMW M50, M52, M54, S52, M42, and M44.

The socket is now available from Laser Tools stockist.
