Just pull back the weather stripping at the top of the door a bit and you'll see it. It's very clear once it's pulled back.

It's what Psst and I said, peel back the weather stripping and you'll see the two metal posts that are the same color as the car.

And you can make your own, you'd need to make an adjustable arm to latch onto the screw/post. If you look at the posts on the car, you'd get a better understanding of it. VW uses an allan key to adjust the clamps to tighten the roof rack down.

Try Thule directly but no, you can't from Vw for OEM as I tried to replace mine before through them.
