Grohe Ladylux side lever handle screw

I'm trying to remove the screw holding the side lever handle of a Grohe Ladylux Cafe kitchen faucet (in order to replace the cartridge) and I can't find the right size allen wrench (I'm assuming it's an allen screw). The screw also has a hex head exterior but it's inset and there isn't enough clearance around it to use a socket. If you also can tell me the replacement part number for the screw only I'd really appreciate it as I may have stripped it. It's the screw near the number 2 in the image. Many thanks.

What is the faucet model number ??
There should be a parts list with part numbers that match those pictorial numbers.

I'm guessing Grohe 33-755 as it's the closest I could find to your diagram.
The part number as shown being associated with the handle is 46310000.
The hardware shows two different type of screw head..... hex and some type of Pozidrive.
I was not able to find the sizes.
My guess is the hardware is stainless steel and metric.
I would take the screw to a local hardware store like ACE where they sell many types of bulk hardware and you can locate a replacement visually.

Grohe lever connection hardware

If you get stuck... check with Grohe directly.
They should be able to send you a handle kit with hardware at no charge.

3mm

I just bought a small set of metric Allen wrenches and a can of PB Blaster with a small straw sprayer. It's a 3mm Allen screw and it was stuck in there pretty good. flattened the end of the PB Blaster straw with pliers to really shove it back in there and let it soak in a while. But it came out and is reusable.

Removed the cartridge, flushed it out with the cartridge off with a bucket (sort of easy with it pointing sideways) and put on replacement cartridge. Fixed my low pressure hot water issue.
