What is that Odd bolt linking the tranny to the engine

Bolt #4 from the top left going counter-clockwise

there are 7 bolts in my 986 with Tiptronic auto-tranny, They are all the same except this one. And its a tool that I do not have. Anyone have any info on how to take off and or what tool this is. Thanks!!

Its a triple square....

You can remove it with a standard allen wrench, it will not contact all the points, but contact enough for removal.

I think its a 10mm triple square, we ended up making our own.
