Default no size will fit

(properly) because it is not an allen/hex type. They are triple-squares / 12-point.

I believe it is a 10mm for the B5S4 (and 8mm for the B5A4)

Default you're referring to the bolts that hold the inner cv to the tranny. They're 10mm triple squares

NAPA, Autozone and a few other places carry them

Default which need to be removed to remove those "axles"....

EDIT: I had thought I had removed my half shafts entirely and was thinking I didn't remove that big bolt - but I only removed the inner CV connections.

Default huh? you're losing me. The front axle DOES have a 17mm driveshaft bolt that secures the splines of

the driveshaft the the hub / spindle assembly. The other half of the axle is connected to the transmission by the 10mm triple squares.
