The only thing would do for the stripped bolts is to retap them with a tap & die set using the next larger size. As for the one that's broken off you can use what's called an "Easyout". You drill a hole into the broken off part of the bolt and then insert the Easyout. The Easyout has left hand threads and as you turn it , it bites into the broken bolt and usually will take it right out.
Hope this helps.
Good luck Loringh

I briefly looked online and did not see any info direct6ly relating to the torque spec of the cover bolts. I would guess around 15 ft lbs.--not too much--the head is aluminium--best way to go is to walk up to the service counter of the VW dealer and ask him to provide that information. You have the car and they built it!
