    Scuttle panel screws

    Hi all, I recently had to work my magic in the plenum chamber area as there was a bit of corrosion. That's all done now, and hopefully I've caught it early enough.

    Anyway, I had to remove the scuttle panel in order to get the battery out. All the plastic screws holding it in have previously had the head ruined, so they won't turn. They are like a locking screw which turns 90deg. Luckily the panel just slid out, so I'm guessing they've not been locked in the past due to being ruined.

    Is it possible to buy just these screws or am I going to need a new scuttle panel?

    I've uploaded a pic so you can see which bits I mean.

    Cheers

    Can't find them listed seperately, but it might be worth a pm to stoke Audi? Also have heard of people heating up screwdrivers and making new grooves.
