It should be a 15mm. But we just look at what type of tool is needed, and if it's an open-end wrench or socket, we try a few to find the right one. Some replacements use a square drive, usually 1/2", as found on the end of a ratchet or breaker bar.

Here is a guide to help you see what you are in for when doing the job.
