That is a stock item. I was thinking earlier model beetle that do not have that plate.
If the bolt is stripped or the part that the bolt screws into is spinning, there's not much that can be done, aside from forcing
the pieces apart.
Try to apply downward pressure on the plate while turning the bolt. Wedge a pry bar between the plate and the subframe.
