I bought a new freehub body for Bontrager Race Lite Disc wheel at the Trek LBS. Cost was ~$32. It seems that Trek/Bontrager prohibit shops/stores from selling on line. During my search, I could easily find Shimano freehub bodies, but nothing for Trek/Bont.
For my freehub, I needed an 11mm hex socket (Allen head) to remove it. I was able to find plenty of 10mm and 12mm, but no 11mm. However, a 7/16 inch (11.112mm) hex socket worked fine. After I removed the old one, I bought the new one, and it came with a 11mm hex socket adapter. The LBS guy mumbled something about my particular freehub body was made by DT/Swiss.
It's easy to change: remove the axle, then remove the freehub shell - it's that simple.
