    I'm afraid it's not a normal DIN (or ISO) shape, in other words, it might be a Volkswagen special.
    DIN 609 ir DIN 610 is similar, but without the "toothed" part, also only goes till 10.9 :eyebrow:
    Actually, that would be special, readily available is 8.8

    If there's 8 bolts in the kit, and disassembling them from another 'box is gonna be hard work, I'd go for the kit tbh. It doesn't sound like it's going to be sensibly simple to find them from another source.

    Price is for 10 bolts - various lengths available.

    Plain nuts, to suit - you'd need to use some thread or stud lock

    Or use some all metal locking nuts:

    I'm not sure you'd want to use nylocs in the gearbox, as it's going to get hot in there.

    long shot but ask your local seat dealer, most of the parts used are the same on vw's.
    part numbers are often the same, but price is alot cheaper.
