Hey guys,

So awhile ago I noticed I was missing this on the passenger side of my radiator Here I was lucky enough to actually find it jammed into a corner today beside my air intake. Now I notice that it requires a bolt through the back of it to keep it attached to the front grill area. My drivers side one is missing too or else I would just use that to compare. Anyone know what size / length bolt this is? I see it has treading on the inside of this mounting bracket so last thing I want to do is **** up the treads with the wrong size bolt / screw.

I am also curious if I really need the clip that goes though the mounting bracket and the radiator mounting bushing or if I could just fasten something with a bolt?

It's not a standard fastener... just go grab it at the dealer.... it will only cost a dollar or three WHT003956

Hey I am not looking for the bracket I am looking for the bolt that is used to attached this bracket to the front grill / rack area. I would love to go to the dealer even if I had to pay 10$ for this .50$ bolt but they are 500miles away.

You asked about the fastener.
I told you it's not standard (read, you can't go to hardware store and get a 1/4-20*1 off the shelf) and gave you a part number to either order it online or to look it up so that you understand the problem.....
You responded with I'm not looking for the bracket... Totally irrelevant, so I asked to to actually look at and read what I posted.....
Now you're barking about not being helpful?

Did you expect me to come out to your stix to deliver it for you? Or to build a local shop that specializes in VAG screws close to you? How am I not being helpful?

Pull up your skirt, retap the block for a standard pitch fastener, use an insert, figure something out. I don't know what miracle answer you're expecting here.

Just expecting some help but I just get these super sarcastic replies from trolls. Lets go Brandon!

Settle down guys......
Unless you tell us differently, then (most) people will assume you are able to resource items from a dealer (locally). If not locally, then (and I notice this from the other side of the world nwhen I search for parts etc), U.S.A dealerships are happy to sell online. No doubt, over the phone or by email service would be similar.
So, here's a thought.
@SaVAGeSoot has provided you @iliketurtles54904 with a wise 'caution' in respect to your search for a suitable item to re-attach the bracket to the radiator cross member support.
Now that you are armed with such important information, together with part numbers for the piece/s you have, wouldn't it be a simple matter of phoning/emailing your nearest dealership and see if they can help?
That's what I'd do....unless I have missed something here.
