    After a set of front wheel bearings for my A4, i emailed i guy on ebay selling them, he had it advertised as "Front wheel bearing kit for audi a4 95-2000, i sent him my reg plate because it said to and he said he didnt have one for my car. So are the b5 A4's fitted with different ones?

    My cars a 98 on a R plate, 1.9tdi 110. Can anyone help in finding me the correct part.

    There are two bearing sizes, 75mm and 82mm.

    Not sure what a 110 TDI would have as standard, but i'd guess the 75mm ones.

    What i've seen so far, is 75mm cars have a 14mm hex head on the big bolt in the middle, 82mm cars have a 17mm one, so that might prove easy to check.

    I'd buy the bearings somewhere reputable, All German Parts gets my vote.

    Ebay might save you a few quid, but fitting cheapo bearings just doesnt make any sense, as they're such a faff to change. Buy **** ones and you'll be doing the job again far too soon.

    Yeah, be careful of eBay ones. I bought a cheap pair of rear bearings from eBay. 500 miles later and 3 months later I got an MOT advisory on one of them.
