The screws for the "beak" are called out as the same as those for the door 
check straps. I'm thinking those may have been Phillips heads. Looking at 
the engine tin bolts, those are different (cheese head) but also have the A 
prefix, so my guess is that the A indicates that extra notch in the beginning 
threads that clears out paint, like a tap. VW used that style anywhere the 
screw would have encountered paint in a new car.
