    Which side you need ?

    A4 saloon and avant are the same, have you searched eBay for people breaking A4's ??

    I'd say the passat 1.8t may have slightly bigger rear discs but I may be wrong.

    They may be different, as later cars used an alloy caliper, but they're interchangeable.

    Just get both calipers off the passat and swap em both if need be.

    yeah think my ones are steel.so i can get away with just swapping either one or both calipers without swapping discs and pads as my own discs and pads are only a month old.just want to be sure on it as i use the car daily.
    thanks alot for all this help.

    You might need to use the pads for the alloy calipers. Disk is fine.

    Audi sell repair kits ('o' ring seal, dust sleeve, etc) so a replacement calliper isn't necessarily the only option. I use Lockheed red grease on pison bore before rebuilding. Also worth replacing brake fluid nipple as they're prone to breaking. You'll need brake wind back tool too. Good opportunity to dismantle the handbrake spring to clean and lube, and check condition of handbrake cable.
