    You can use a front sensor or FWD rear sensor(ebay, 15quid) but you need do fettle it a bit to fit.

    The grommets are in a slightly different place etc.

    You'll need a new copper sleeve too.

    I got a fwd rear one off ebay for £17 delivered, works fine. As above make sure you replace the copper sleeve though as if not it might pop out. Youll need a screwdriver to pop the holders that hold the wire in place to the hub, and the connector is under the rear bench. Just pull on it at the front corners then slide it forward and upwards.

    The connectors are hidden inside a little plastic cubby hole, just follow the wire from the grommet underneath. 15 minute job if you pull the wheel off.

    mine has the same plastic sensors and i successfully replaced one with a front sensor and the copper sleeve.

    I just cut and soldered the wires on mine, because it was a salvaged sensor that had the wires cut, but i think the plug should be the same. No biggie if its not though!

    Audi!

    If your fitting plastic bolt-in sensors you dont need the sleeves, they're only needed for the earlier "push in" metal cased sensors.
