7mm allen. At least thats what it is on 00-04 standard models. Dunno if the SVT is different.

Good luck finding one.

Would that be a 7mm allen torque bit or a 7mm hex bit? I'm about to change the rotor/pads on my 04 ZTS and the set up is different than the SVT's. I just changed the rotors/pads on the SVT 2 weeks ago.
