Hello all, was working on my wagon the other night with the goal of swapping the nasty old fuel filter but ran into rusty nuts that hold the undertray covering the fuel filter disintegrating on me. Now I k on to remove the old rusty nuts ill need some of those extrator bits, but what I'm at a loss at is finding out what replacement nuts from vw to get as I dont necessarily know what that undertray over the filter is called. Any help would be appreciated in figuring out the right hardware.

It's a nut and bolt or a stud and nut? My rec is to use good stainless hardware. Or something with a high zinc coating.

Its a stud thats like welded to the body with a nut yeah. And for sure agree with the coating cause the previous ones are toast. I will have to destroy the old ones so I need to figure out the correct thread for new nuts though.

It's basically the same thing the guy behind the parts desk looks at on his computer at the dealership.
It requires some ingenuity to find a few select parts but most everything else is pretty straight forward.
Very handy tool set to have at your fingertips.

Yeah seriously cool for sure, love hunting down all the correct oem parts for this car. Fun to need out on it a little.
