Cleaning MAF - getting it off??

Hello. Would like to clean my MAF, but am puzzling how to get it off given that the torx type screws have a little pin in the middle, so my driver dosen't fit. Do i need a special tool or something?

security torx bits are needed, either that or you grip the sides of the screw's head with pliers.

To get the sensor out of the housing there are two different type of fixings used depending on age.
Some have Security Torx (6-point)
Some have TS-Star (5-point)

as jug says, you need the security torx driver to get them out, or a pair of plyers will work
