Urgent: 10mm 12-point socket in So Cal?

OOPS. I began disassembly for a clutch replacement on my 2000 Boxster S, but discovered that I do NOT actually have a 10mm 12-point socket for that one confounded transmission-to-engine bolt. The car is in a borrowed workspace in Ontario, California and I need to have it out of there in the next couple of days. I could just order the socket, but that doesn't fix my time problem. I'd hate to reassemble the car without replacing the clutch.

Is there anyone (preferrably in the Inland Empire area) who would be willing to loan the socket to me for a couple of days? I would gladly pay rent on the socket.

Thanks,
Greg Smith

Greg, They are $4 at Autozone, Pep Boys, Napa. I am near you and could probably dig one up if you are in dire straights. What is your 20?

Well, that's good news! I'm leaving right now for the Autozone on Archibald in Ontario...

UPDATE: Success! I scored a set of 12-point bits for $12. Thanks for the tip! I rarely ever visit chain auto parts stores, so I don't usually think of them as a tool source.

Glad you found it. I checked my toolbox and could not find my 10mm 12pt 3/8 drive socket either but I have one in 1/2" drive. If you break your new one let me know.
