The driver's door strap bolt on my 2013 Tiguan has worked loose and I believe that it needs to be tightened up with a square spline socket. Does anyone know what size socket I would need?

Just get the cheap 4 piece kit from your local parts store that slides into a deep socket. It will have everything you will ever need as far as triple square for the Tiggy. Believe I got mine for under $15.

Eddie, did you just post once and then they replicated themselves?

Cheers!

No, I think that because the post did not submit straightaway, I pressed the "Submit" button several times whilst the internet was playing up. My mistake!

Are you asking about the bolt that holds the strap to the door jamb?

On my 2012 Tiguan it looks like it is a Hex (allen key) bolt, probably 8mm.

Iangaryprice, they are triple square, I've had to give mine an occasional nudge. The spines are super fine, 2x as many as a Torx bolt. VW uses very few Allen bolts a good set of Triple Square bits is a must have for any toolbox.

Yes it is a triple square bolt that is in the door jamb. Just had my Tig in for a minor service and should have sorted it then.

I bought a new door check strap for mine then noticed it was just the bolts loose, so if any one wants a new  right hand front Mk1 Tig check strap PM me lol.
