Hey everyone,

I'm new to the forums and am struggling with my 2004 Toureg. The drivers side headlight hex bolt assembly is completely missing. All I see is the lower gear that holds the headlight in. I used a dremmel to trim away the plastic to try and get at the gear with a vice grip but I couldn't. Has anyone else had this issue? Is there anything I can do? Thanks!

Very common fault with lots of threads on here about it.

Most folk manage with a pair of Mole grips or similar.

You need a new headlight bucket which requires the front bumper to be removed - a half hour job with two dozen fixings to undo but is a two man job and put out a large blanket or quilt first to drop the bumper on to protect the paint.

I'm sure you can remedy the issue with a workaround, but I would recommend doing the fix right by following noobytoogy's note here.
