    ive got 2 rear passenger side r32 brake calipers and carriers .

    can i use the passenger side carrier on the drivers side if i buy a caliper because looking at it i cant see a probelm
    also just look at my old carriers i took of some time ago and the carriers are the same.


    also some where on here is a post of the different prices for calipers from vw / audi / skoda etc etc but can t find it
    thanks

    he has 2 passenger calipers and 2 passenger carriers. He wants to split one and buy a drievrs side caliper hence asking if he can use a drivers side caliper with a passenger side carrier.
