Phillips Driver for Door Hinges

I can not locate a Phillips head driver bigger than a #3. Can anyone provide a link to a larger one. I am replacing all my hinge screws with SS. Thanks

I think it should be Pozidriv not Phillips.

Yep. Easy way to tell is the X stamped into the screw head, between the slots. Another common screw (not on rovers, but you'll see it other places) are the Japanese JIS standard. They have a single dot between the slots in one corner.

I had this problem during my rebuild.

The problem is not whether the bit is Pozi or not. The problem is the size of the bit. There are two places where this massive phillips head is used - the door hinges and the hinges for the windscreen. Pozi just changes the engagement angles and adds some additional teeth, but it is irrelevant for the task at hand. Believe me - I tried removing the windscreen hinge screws with a #3 and a #3 Pozi and I literally bent and stripped 3 bits. I then put the correct #4 bit in my impact driver and removed the screws in seconds.

The largest size every hardware store sells is a #3 Phillips.

You will need to find a #4 Phillips Bit online.

To give you an idea:

OK, I found a Phillips #4. It is supposed to be in stock at my local Sears. With the Omega link, you have to buy a bunch.

When you strip out the screw with a Phillips bit, you can remove it with a Pozi-Drive bit.

I used the craftsman impact driver and it came with #2,3 and 4 driver sheared screws off with it and never once slipped in the head of the screw..
$25ish at sears as I recall.

Impact driver. I broke a bit with it. Then I came up with the idea of the bit in my half inch impact gun and that worked. Top comes out easy, bottom was a nightmare.

I noticed that the bottom set is rusty looking. Not looking forward to that. How did you get the sheared screws out?

You can bust the captive nut and remove it. If the captive nuts are to be reused, run a tap through them, use tones of anti-sieze and then spray it all with waxoyl.

If the screws are really stuck, it is very simple to drill the head off. It is quick and easy.
