Default Battery removal - what size Torx??

Down to the last two bolts (see photo) - these (I believe) hold the black metal plate (which clamps the battery down) tight to the body. They are torx, but my T40 slips and the T45 is too big. I;m not aware of a size in between, but I've been wrong before. Any feedback appreciated. Thanks

I don't think those come off. There are some smaller bolts sticking up (under the strut bar on our cars, of course) with nuts on them. the nuts come off. Those big bolts stay put. I couldn't get a 10mm socket to work because of the strut bar, but if I'm remembering right I just used some sort of wrench or pliers and a lot of patience.
