    I found the perfect screwdriver for the Dzus fasteners that hold the under-engine tray / heat shield. It's the TOP TRD-45 and I got it from Amazon for around $20. It is a very nice fit and it provides plenty of torque. Much better than using a flat-blade screwdriver or a coin! I hope this is...

    My 1998 Passat came without the fasteners that connect the bumper clip to the radiator support. What kind of fasteners are needed? Can some post links or photos so I can dig them up somewhere?

    I'm installing my HIDs today and removed the front bumper cover. In doing so I've noticed that many fasteners are missing. Are these VW items or something I can pickup at AutoZone etc? How would I refer to them body screws?

    Sirs At first: This mod has NO safety relevance. The seatbelt-fastener housing is just a cover, nothing else. You need: 17mm wrench set Flat-head screwdriver Side-cutting pliers Cutting knife Soldering iron Solder Collant Isopropyl alcohol Some wires (I used 0,2sq. mm) for inner-housing use...

    A re-tread on the highway totally took out both lower grill pieces. Now I have the replacement parts but I'm not sure what type of fasteners hold the long lower grill piece in place. Can someone tell me, or show pics of, the type of fasteners that are used OEM?

    '99 1.8T, manual tranny. Last Seafoam indicated a very porous connection between cat & turbo. There are three nuts. When looking into the engine bay two are easy to see/reach. The last one, underneath, appears to be a real bear to undo, especially after 197,000+ miles and 11 years (DOM 12/98)...

    And where can I get them online? Dealer? I'm tired of looking at that droopy black under hood insulation mat in an otherwise detailed engine bay. I even waxed the underside of the hood. ;)

    My 02 1.8T is missing a few hood liner fasteners. They look like a flat metal tab that holds the liner to the hood. Anyone know where to get these fasteners.

    I just removed my wheel well shell in order to patch it with some mudflap material and wire ties. Looks decent. Anyway, I figured I would ask here before re-installing to see if anyone has a decent alternative to these black, 1/4-turn, plastic fasteners (connecting well to belly pan). Like...

    Someone was looking for fasteners yesterday, but I can't find the link. Hope they see this...

    So today was my first journey into the Passat underworld...where things go wrong. My 2003 5.5 was pulling hard to the right while driving. The wife said she noticed a pull to the right a week ago but today it was unmistakable. So I took the car to a tire/alignment/repair shop where I am friends...
