(Note- The torx drives in the top of the screws will be full of dust/dirt. Using a scribe etc, pick out the dirt/dust to get a good clean location with the torx driver. Failing to do this could cause you to strip out the head of the torx screw)
Any tips on what to do if these are stripped? I cleaned the Brembos in degreaser and picked out the brake dust in the caps, however I managed to strip quite a few of them. I'm not sure how to remove them now, they're torqued down quite well from what I recall of the few I did remove. I'm nearly 100% I can't fit a drill in there so I'm at a loss.

Please halp.
