Default Door handle screws... torx, but what size, and how?

I'm replacing my old worn looking door handle with a new one. It looks like there are some small torx screws holding it in place, but it's recessed pretty far back there and can barely hit it with the size of my torx sockets... I'd like to know for sure what size are they before I start.

I'm referring to bolt #3 in the picture below:

Use a torx screwdriver instead of sockets. If you don't have a set, it's a good investment. The rear armrests/door cards are also held in place by torx screws (or occasionally 8mm bolts). But did you really need an excuse to buy tools?
