Question tail lamp star nut part #?

Does anybody know what the part # is for a star nut? This is the star nut that holds the tail lamp lenses on.

The "knurled nut" shown here? Drop the one for the other side down in the body?

Yes the kurled nut. I need 1,2 and 3 actually.
I need the part numbers if you have them.

I bought my beetle used. the passanger side was rigged with a bunch of washers and a nut... I drop these "rigged solutions" every time.

I appreciate the help.

My p/n diagram link is down. IndyTom's on, I'll send him over, think he has one he can access. Hope when the jury rigged it they used a metric and didn't strip it. If IndyTom can't help, Blugg can, he'll probably be around late, he's on the other side of the pond.

I am still looking. Went to V.W. AND Audi OEM Parts | Genuine Factory Parts Accessories | Wholesale and searched for tail light and found the assembly for the tail light but not the Knurled nut or the spacer and washer. Still looking .

Found the NUT but not the Part number for it: Description MSRP Price Your Price Core Price Qty Total Cost
Collision Catalog - 2005 - Volkswagen - Beetle Convertible
Rear lamps, Tail lamps, Tail lamp assy, Nut, Nut Either Side - 2003-05 - 2003-05 $3.30 $1.97 $0.00 $1.97
Total: $1.97

This is from the VW PARTS Center. Knurled nut isn't too expensive

Today (Thanksgiving) I am thankful for you all that are helping me find the part numbers. I do appreciate your efforts.

It does look like that they used a metric nut. Doesn't seem or looked stripped.

Thank you thank you thank you again.
