Diff Oil Filler/Level Plug

Could someone advise me about the correct tool to remove this from my BMW (open) diff please?

It looks like it might be a large Torx type affair and if so I'll need to buy one.

 

Thanks,

Alan

Mine is a 14mm Allen key.

Thanks James. On closer inspection it does look like a hex rather than a torx.

Replacing with one of these is a good idea - TITAN LSD or not. Gold Plug Magnetic Sump Plug AP-22. M22 22mm Oil Drain Plug. M22 x 1.5 AP22 5060507791646 | eBay
