    Hi all,
    Im in need of a rear abs sensor and the sleeve that holds it in place for my B5 quattro tdi.
    Ive searched on ebay and all I can find is a 2.5 V6 one.
    Does anyone know if these are interchangable, or any ideas where to buy a new one other than the stealers.

    Many thanks

    actual quattro rear sensors are impossible to find other than at the dealer.

    You can either buy a FWD rear sensor (they're about £10-15 on ebay) then tweak the positions of the rubber boots to suit, or buy a front sensor, cut the cable off and splice it into the original cable to the rear sensor.

    The brass sleeve is dealer only.

    Mine are the click in type.
    I've trawled through the net but all i van find on ebay are 2.5 ones. not sure if they fit/not. I imagine not!
    I must try the front one and see how that works out.

    I suppose dealer ones are £100+++

    Use a FWD rear if they're push-ins, the wires a better length etc.
