T4 Post Icon Brake Parts from GSF - Using PR Numbers

Got a bit of a mystery as regards PR numbers for my 2000 2.5TDI...

I've got a PR number of 1LU in my owners manual - works fine for the front brakes, but the problem is with the rears. On GSF, Euro and others it states that the back brake PR is either 2E2 or 2E3, but neither number is shown on the sticker in the manual.

I'm fairly sure that it's a 2E2 but just wondered if anyone else had come across this at all?

Try searching by the VIN.....that should show how it came out of the factory.

I bought rear brake parts recently and struggled to find any codes on the van. From my research I believe that the 2E2 designation relates to vehicles with 280mm diameter rear discs, whilst the 2E3 has the 294mm rear discs. I replaced calipers, carrier frames, bolts, hoses discs and pads - I got lucky and all the gear I got from various suppliers fitted ok.

Yeah I think that's what it is, it says 1LU on the data sticker in the manual, but no sign of 2E2 anywhere ...
