Default Need Front Wheel bearing Hub Bolts

I looking for thr ones that mount the hub flange to the steering knuckle.

I already stripped the drive socket out of 1 trying to use the cheap Autozone 12mm 12 point bit.

I ordered a hub online that showed PIX of a complete "kit" that included the bolts only to find that the PIX were outdated & the hub I received does not come W/the bolts.

Volkswagen Jetta Wheel Bearing & Hub Assembly at 1AAuto.com with how-to installation video.

The wheel bearing in Wifey's car is really noisy & I want to get this done ASAP.

I don't want to go through all the time/hassle of returning the hub I have, waiting for the refund in order to order a new hub that does have the bolts.

I've been unemployed for a long time so I don't have the money to just order the new hub & wait on the refund.

1A Auto has offered to refund the price difference for the hub W/O bolts (about $20) so if I can find the bolts somewhere I can just order them.

I live in a very "rural" are in New York state near the Canadian border & the nearest VW dealer is over 90 mile away so it is probably cheaper to order online & pay shipping.

Can anyone lead me to site that would have these bolts listed?

I'm not having much luck W/"google" .

OK I found some @ the VW dealer just across the St. Lawrence River in Cornwall, ON.

He took them out of a hub assembly & is ordering replacements for his stock.

I doubt that any of ther dealers in NY state would have done this.

It will cost me about $5 for bridge tolls & $3.89 ea for 4 bolts.
