Screws that secure the wheel bearing lock ring/slip ring (43532-60020) to the wheel bearing adjustment nut (43533-60020) to prevent the wheel bearing adjustment nut from backing off.
Note: These screws can be very tricky to remove if they have been in place for a long time and often strip the torx head out.
Tips for removal: There are a few way to get these to loosen off when they are being difficult: one method is to you a flat-ended punch with a relatively wide end (so as to not damage the slip ring surface of break the brass slip rings) and to tap the punch to impact the slip ring while another person is applying torque to the screw with a T20 torx socket on a 1/4" drive ratchet with as small ratchet or 1/4" drive mini breaker bar. 3/8" tools work as well.
Another way to get the screws to back off is to use a hand-operated impact driver - and hammer the driver !!gently!! - as you apply loosening pressure to the screw - this has a similar but somewhat different effect to the above method.
Be careful not to apply to much force as these screws can strip the torx drive in the screw or break the end of the torx socket/screwdriver rather easily.
