maybe some haynes or something. I personally have never seen a automakers manual that listed the size of the tool UNLESS it was some very specialty thing. from the wk 2007 manual:
1. Remove the air box cover and air intake hose.
2. Disconnect the cruise control servo electrical connector.
3. Remove the coolant reservoir mounting bolt and move the coolant reservoir off to the side.
4. Remove the four upper shock mounting nuts (1).
5. Raise and support the vehicle.
6. Remove the tire.
7. Remove the two brake caliper adapter bolts.
8. Support the brake caliper adaptor and caliper. Do not allow the caliper to hang by the brake hose.
9. Remove the disc brake rotor.
10. Remove the upper ball joint nut.
11. Separate the upper ball joint (2) from the knuckle
(3) using special tool 8677(1).
