      Have you picked at them to see if the slots are full of corrosion?

        tamper proofs so no one snakes the quick filler. cut a slot or drill out and replace. or find that bit. Eaton made them for Mopar for radios too

          Yep, security screws.

          I would be tempted to use a good needle nose pliers and grab two of those slots and gently try and turn them out. Go easy so not to damage the head.

          I use needle nose vise grips to back them out a few turns from inside the trunk area. Then I can grab the head outside. Reverse procedure to tighten them back in again. Others are easier than fastback of course.
