Hmmm Polydrive/Ribe screws?

I have a -97 GTV 2.0TS and I'm about to change the timing and balance shaft belts. I discovered that some of the screws that I need to remove do not have a Torx head as I thought, but a Polydrive/Ribe head. So far I have spotted Ribe screws on the ignition coil cover, on the ignition cassette, on the cam belt cover and on the multi rib drive pulley.

As far as i can measure, the ones on the ignition coil cover are size M7. Does anyone know if I need other sizes as well to do the belt change?

(Using torx bits might work, but I don't like taking the risk of damaging the screws and possibly end up with a damaged head and a screw that cannot be removed.)
