    Off hand, I do not know but you should do this:

    Go to parts store like pep boys or auto zone to buy the socketed allen tool. They sell the replacement bolts in the same section as all the other common parts (like window cranks and dome lights.) You can size it and buy the tool there.

    Good Luck

    Alright, I went out in my 120 degree garage and looked at my brake tools. Its 3/8 inch. Be sure to get it in a socket instead of the allen wrench version.
