Never lost one between multiple Passats in the family. I've had multiple turn signal assemblies fall out.

If you are finding them difficult to retain, the best thing to do is to screw them in place. The best place to do this is on the outside of the thick, vertical bar on the grille. Use a screw, like the ones that hold the wheel well liners in place. Screw it in the upper, outside of that vertical bar, so the head of the screw is pointing towards the fog light.

I have found black zip ties around the two areas where the three grills meet are very handy at keeping them in place.

Seems like the last 5 years, it's been brutal on the grills when taking long highway road trips. Each time some road debris, tire pieces, tumble weeds, rocks, small animals would hit the car, I would loose a grill and have a fog light taken out. I think I've lost 5 grills and during this past trip, I now need to replace a second fog lamp. Zip tying is a great idea ^^^. Not sure why I haven't thought about that.

I dropped a couple when the front end ran over a high curb when parking.
Luckily, most times I noticed it and picked up the loose part and popped it back on.
