Mine is exactly 11mm.  A 10mm Allen key just turns harmlessly.  I tried making an Allen key.  At 11mm it was a very nice fit, but snapped before the plug came loose.  I'm going out today in search of the elusive 11mm.  Probably get it in one of those half inch drive sets.

Incidentally, the front axle has a normal 15mm hex head.  Unusual, but at least not unheard of, and I do have the spanner to fit.

Weird my 10mm does the job and it's pretty tight every time I undo it  ??? Anyway +1 on the rebuild thread.
