Yes, Clean the bolt heads out. I believe the one you're looking for is the #12 tripple square. You can also get one from the Snap On Tools truck. Mine cost about $15. In my mind, the extra $$ are worth it when the Snap On one has a tendency to be a higher quality one. Many people think that buying higher quality is only for longevity. I disagree. It's also for more precise heat treating and milling, and a lower chances of stripping the bolt heads and having a mess to get them out. That's my $.02.
