I don't remember the exact size, but want to warn you not to over tighten when you put it back in. It strips easily so be careful. You may want to use some Loctite. I replaced my original air filter with a K&N High Flow air filter (63-1130) and put a bead of the Loctite to keep it snug. Gained 6.6 HP

5mm I think. Get a set of MM Allen Keys from the hardware store. The Screw is not super tight.

Get the blue loctite. I use that on the bolt holding the housing cover.
