Just type the part number into Ebay and some options should appear. Just make sure you buy an OEM one as cheap sensors can be false economy. If that fails call your local VAG dealer and maybe they will post one out to you if you can't get there in person.

Thanks cuprabob

I usually try to avoid eBay thought.
What is the original brand and reference for this part ?

Sorry, I don't know which brand but OEM sensors are normally Bosch.

With regards to the part number, you can get it off this website with a little patience.

Otherwise just get it from your local dealer Other than the 2 year warranty on the part they will be aware if the sensor has been updated and will supply the latest part.
