Is there a tool for the back of Campag Record Carbon cranks chainring bolts, the t30 torque bolt type.

I've got one bolt that's a pig to undue. I have a shimano chainring bolt tool but that's too wide for the rear slot, I can't hold a suitable screwdriver on it. Any ideas?

You need to get a screwdriver or socket with a Torx T30 head on it if you want to get it out. Don't try and muscle it out with an inappropriate tool. That's a surefire way to screw it up!

The torx driver shouldn't be more than a few dollars/euro at a hardware store.

Campagnolo do make a chainring nut removal tool to fit their own nuts, it is fairly inexpensive.

A Park or Shimano chainring nut wrench can be make to fit with a little help from a file or dremel tool.

That could be the answer.

I have the t30 socket thats not the problem. The rear holding fork Campag do is for the older units.

Thanks Dicky

Sorted with the steel rule trick.

I wouldn't want to be a team mechanic with them though.

Thanks to eveyone.
