    Yup, rear calipers siezing is common. When the pads are worn down, the piston is right out and open to the elements.

    I got a replacement OEM part from Euro for £150 exchange. Think there just reconditioned, but are in as new condition. Audi wanted £440!

    Hmmm, well there not red from Euro, Easily painted mind, could be worth getting and fitting both sides. Wish I had now just for peace of mind!
