    I dont know what 'bolds' are but if you are referring to the upper dipstick tube (orange plastic) it just pushes on and locates into a bracket just below the inlet manifold, no bolts.

    I think it is a standard design on all VAG cars. The parts are about £1 each from GSF. When fitting, but the plastic in boiling water for a few minutes to help soften it up a bit. Reduces the chance of it shattering as you try to put it on.
