The bolt to the hinge on the left side of the lift door / tailgate / hatch on my 2008 Passat wagon sheared. I have been using the tailgate and just making sure I apply pressure when closing it since that is when the pressure seems to be exerted and when it sheared.

So.... How does one replace this bolt? I can probably get one at the hardware store but would prefer an OEM part just because I have a pretty negative view of Chinese steel, especially off-the-rack, so the real issue is how to fit one in a spot where there isn't room to navigate.

Thank you!
