Rebuilding My 325i head

I need to know how to remove the torx bolt on the camshaft gear with out damaging the outer areas of the head. The head is already out of the car.

Take a section of the old timing belt and a O2 sensor socket, cut the timing belt so that you have enough to wrap around the sprocket then mesh the timing belt teeth together then slip it into the O2 sensor slot then roll it up then use a breaker bar to hold it in place so that you can break the bolt loose. Sometimes you can pinch the timing belt together and hold it with channel locks so that you can undo the bolt too.

Good luck.
