Well,
Today I disconnected the neg. battery terminal in order to do some work, and alas as I was removing the nut, the wing that squeezes the terminal together to stay on tight, snapped thus leaving me with an endless ride in the car with a loose cable looking for something similar that would work in it's place. I ended up using a nut and bolt which DOESN'T help. I went everywhere and most places said "what the hell kind of piece is that?, what car is this from?" and so I replied "it's off a volkswagen jetta."
Anyhow, I need to find a place to acquire this particular part or something that is similar and works as well? Anyone? Or should I just overall change my terminal adapters to the "common car" nut/bolt style? Any help where I can find this particular wing screw would be appreciated. Thanks!!!

It's a $7 part at the VW dealer. They had to special order mine, but it didn't really matter since the connection was tight as it was with the Optima Battery.

3A0 915 138 is the part number for the threaded bolt with the clamping piece at the bottom that goes under the battery terminal.

That's nuts. Heh! Well, I can get em free from my gf's dad n all, but still, it happened after the fact that I could had went out and got one. I was just wondering where I could possibly order em online since it'd be nice to have a bunch just in case. I've been learning the hard way and kind of enjoy it, not. As long as my cable stays on I guess I'm a-okay.
Thanks for the info, and thanks for the part #, bialyorzle
