Don't believe so. Fram made a kit that screwed into the crankcase drain plug that would allow you to open/close the crankcase drain plug during oil changes without removing the drain plug...But I don't know if they still make these kits. They seem problematic to me -- I would rather remove the plug than have the chance of my plug opening itself. Only other thing might be an aftermarket VW accessory you could find through the dealer.
