    hi guys i have a 1998/9 2.5 tdi a4, the disks are nackered

    so i got some new disks, i then tried to remove the abs ring of rear of old hub of my car, not a chance its rusted on an will break if i try.

    went to the main dealers got 2 new abs rings, got home and there completely different,

    on the new ones they are raised castle type edges every 3 mm , and on mine it has holes every 3 mm,

    i think abs work on magnets but the main dealers say this is the only part they have for my car, any one know if they will fit please. asked in there garage know one seams to know for sure ........help

    Quattros just have normal disks, so no worries there 205man.

    splasher, my old fwd had the castle type, and the replacement rings i fitted were also the castle type.

    I suspect the edge/hole will produce the same output anyway so dont worry about it!
