Was changing the rear bearing in my 2001 A4 Avant Quattro 1.8T
****ed up the spindle/upright in more than one way, need a new one.
Basically, I need to know if the spindle/upright from the 2.8 series will fit the 1.8t, and from which years ?
Basically, which are interchangeable years/models/engine sizes for the Driversside Rear spindle. So I know what car to pull it from at the junk yard, or look for part outs.

Re: Screwed myself over, need help. (Calmingstorm)

The rears should be interchangeable between all engines from Audi A4 1996-2001 (B5 chassis) and VW Passat 1998-2004 (B5 chassis)
You just need to match on the following specifics:
- quattro/4motion
- ESP
So if your car has quattro and ESP, the donor car needs that same combo as well. At the salvage yard, you should be able to peek into the window to see if there is an ESP button on the dash or not.

4wd B5 Passat does not have the same rear as the B5 quattro A4.
I think it is the same as the A6 quattro rear.

Oh yeah I think you're right. The fronts are the same though. Weird how they mix and match parts like that.
