2004 malibu wheel cylinders

I know this is not a hot rod but i want to install new rear wheel cylinders. I need a special socket to remove the wheel cylinder bolts, the bolt looks like a star. Where can i find that tool?

At any REAL parts store (not the "McParts" stores like Pep boys or AutoZone) will have them. They are called "Torx".

Yes they would. Now, mind you, I don't know for SURE that this is what the car uses. It could have some odd ball bolt that needs a special tool. Earlier Malibus for instance used a clip to hold the wheel cyl in and it is a pain in the ars without a special tool designed JUST for this.

It could also be a female torx, so get over to the Sears store and look at what they have to see if it makes sense.
