It's kit # 60750 under the Fastener section, which includes 6, 8, 10, & 12m=
m sizes.  Or # 60780 is the 10mm individually wrapped.  Though I've only se=
en them in the kit of 4, and it's cheap enough that you may as well get it.=
  Besides, if you ever need to remove the head you'll need the 12mm, and if=
 you ever have to do CV joints on VW's or smaller Audis you'll need the 8mm=
.  Just go to any of your FLAPS and ask for the triple square bits.

As for the inner CV joint boot, that's a judgement call, but the boot is ch=
eap enough, ~$15, and it is not that much more difficult to remove than the=
 outer one.
