    mk4 front tow hook, where is it kept?

    Hi, ive a mk4 sport, but cant find the metal tow hook that screws into the threaded bit behind the flap on the front bumper.
    Where should it be kept?

    And if i dont have one, where would be the best place to buy one apart from vauxh which will be expensive im shure.

    thanks for replies
    Gary

    Go nick one off a Mondeo - I see them driving round all the time here with the eye screwed on to the back. All the eyes are the same thread, so any one of them will fit.

    Yep, they're all the same, so that the rescue services can attach their towing bars. Also means that a rope won't unscrew the eye as they're twisted the other way.
