From the 7mm and 9mm brake bleeders to the 30mm crank pulley be assured that you will have all the wrenches you could possibly need for general VW maintenance. Note: There is no 36mm wrench in this kit. There will be a second tier for more advanced users in the future.
Gedore 702 8 A Feeler gauge set, fan pattern .002 - .020"
Use these to set your valve lash, points, thrust play, and even the new electronic ignition modules need to be set to the thickness of the plastic feeler gauge that comes in the kits.
You can set multiple feeler gauges together to get the proper thickness if the thickness you need is not available.
Spark Plug Socket
Gedore 52 MH Spark plug socket with magnet 20.8 mm 3/8"
For use in confined spaces with jointed tools. With powerful magnets in the hexagon surface, which hold the spark plug safely in the socket.
This works on most generator/ alternator pulleys as well.
3/8" Drive Socket Set
Wera Zyklop 3/8" Complete Metric Socket Set with Swivel and 3" Extension
Unless you purchase a expensive socket set from a tool truck, it's very difficult to find a tool rail with a complete set ranging from 8mm-19mm. There is usually even number sizes missing such as the 16mm, 14mm, 12mm etc. but for piece of mind we have assembled our own set to make sure that if the previous owner of your car used random Japanese or Korean hardware on your pride and joy you don't have to worry! (-;
Sockets feature distinctive knurling for easy manual tightening.
Sets come on a rail system with clips. In the set a longer rail is included and a few sockets that are sold separately. This lets you also customize your socket selection to whatever grouping you'd prefer.
Listed below are three different Allen Key products.
The 17mm is for servicing the oil in your trans-axle and is used even up to the water-cooled models!
There are also two complete Allen Key sets in both metric and standard. VW didn't use many Allen fasteners from the factory but we experienced many aftermarket accessories use a wide variety of Metric or Imperial depending on the manufacturer so we included both to make this kit as versatile as possible.

Wera Zyklop 8000 B 3/8-inch Drive Ratchet
The Wera Zyklop is really more a piece of art than a tool It can be configured to many different angles to get to any pesky or hard to reach bolt.
This ratchet combines 5 ratchet types into 1 robust tool swivel head has defining lock points at 0, 15 and 90 degrees left and right which prevents the head from slipping to make sure there aren't any busted knuckles from cheaply designed mechanisms failing. Another cool feature is the head can be positioned in a way that you can attached a bit driver to the 3/8in anvil, grab the freewheeling rotating sleeve and use it as a speedy screwdriver.
Features easily accessible thumbwheel that reverses direction in any position Kraftform multi-component handle with hard and soft zones.It fits the shape of the hand for ultimate comfort and high-speed torque transfer.
These are out ABSOLUTE favorite drivers. There are multiple sets of these all over the facility. In desk drawers, tool boxes, hung on the wall for easy access. What makes us love these drivers so much? For the features available and the quality you will spend upwards of $125 for the same set from a tool truck that won't even come close to this set in quality. (We've been there and done that, never again.)
The blade of the driver goes all the way through the handle and features a leather pad to prevent the wooden handle from splintering when striking it with a mallet to shock stuck fasteners. They also feature a hex on the blade so you can use a wrench to really torque your fasteners.
As an added benefit you the wood handle is perfectly crafted to fit ergonomically in your hand for extra comfort. These also won't make your toolbox smell like a dirty gym sock from the cheap degrading plastic handles like most off shore driver sets.
