I have had my 2016 Touareg Lux for less than a month and the black VW tow hitch receiver cap has fallen out or been taken by someone. Does anyone know where I can get another one like it besides going back to the dealer?

Any good auto parts store will have them and it will fit more snugly, too. I lost mine within the first year. Amazon is good, too.

Interesting as both mine and my wifes T3's didn't even come with any cap/cover. I thought VW was wise not to include one as I would have left it off anyway.

I had asked, on a boating forum years ago whether most used a cover or not and the overwhelming majority didn't use a cover/cap and I realized it was not a good idea to use one as all it did was trap water/moisture and whatever else gets into the receiver and that leaving it open is better for the receiver.

I have Toyota caps that I had accumulated over the years. I had cut the raised Toyota logos off so there are generic. If you were close to me and wanted one I'd give it to you.
