Hatch Lock triple square bolts

To replace failed hatch lock mechanism, need to remove two “Triple Square” (12-point) bolts that attach lock to hatch panel. Videos say use an MM8 bit but it’s too large, MM6 bit is too small. Cannot find an MM7 in any set or anywhere on internet - if it exists??

Since hatch lock replacement is a common problem, has anyone dealt with this issue?

I struggled with a couple of bolts like them on a audi before, I got one of those cheap multi size socket ends for the ratchet that have them small hex shapes inside on springs, got the bolts off and then just replaced them with standard bolts after to avoid the problem again. The size as far I was aware for these was MM8 though.

Correct, I had the same problem. Bought an mm8 bit due to other people saying it was mm8 and it was too large. My bolts were mm7, plenty can be found on Amazon.

However my bolts were on so ridiculously tight that I ended up stripping one of the bolts.

Golf GTI mk6. M8 triple square bit was too big. Awaiting an M7 from eBay uk as I could not find one in Australia. May have stripped both bolts trying to remove them. Fingers crossed that an M7 will do the trick. They are in very tight indeed.
