Default Need help to find what tool I need

Hi all,
I have a dewalt DWP611 Router and I need to replace the motor housing, but there is one part at the bottom of the router that requires a special tool and I have no clue what tool is that. that part is highlighted in yellow in the image attached to the post.

I appreciate the help with the required tool to buy.

One like this might do it: Pin Spanner Wrench, Chrome Vanadium Steel, Facom, FA-117.B | eBay

But I've also loosen and tightened fittings like that with 3 screw drivers. You hold 2 of the screw drivers vertical across from each other with the flats in opposing recesses and you stick the other screw driver between them and use it to spin the other two. You might need an extra set of hands to do it that way but there is no cost in trying. If what I said is unclear let me know and I'll take a picture.

Thank for everyone helping. It is always nice to see people willing to help.

I have bought one of those spanner wrench but it does not fit although the size is adjustable. the one on the router is small and tight.
@cherry ville it would help if you can post some pictures, it won't harm to save $70 on a new tool that will be used one time mostly.

Thanks again for everyone.

No problem. I'll take one in the morning sometime. It's late and -20C outside right now.

For a different need, I've made the tool before by grinding/filing an appropriately sized socket.
