Default 3.7 sport FL 20000 gaiter

at the last MOT the tester reported a split in the steering rack gaiter , but passed as there was no leak

decided to change it before the next MOT , but which of these is it ?

They are different side to side.

Driver's side - 4D0 419 831E
Passenger side - 8D0 419 831K

Applies to both left and right hand drive.

4D is a part originally designed for the D2. 8D is from the B5 A4.

The racks are a very similar design and the tie rods are all the same so for the passenger side they just used one they already had, whereas the driver's side required something new.
