girling or lucas calipers and diameter of disc are the differing factors.
their is a code on the fusebox label that identifies the front drake type (if i remember rightly)..
alternatively get them from VW based upon your registration as their system will known whats needed on your van. Think i paid about £55 for front pads on my ex-AA.

Actually, saw this...

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but my mate's just replaced pads front and back on his and they were:

Front Pads: 7D0 698 151 C - £55 + VAT
Rear Pads: 7D0 698 451 J - £52 + VAT

Bear in mind that there are uprated brakes on the front (in your Service Schedule you should have the PR code 1LE which should mean the front pads listed above are correct).

From the diagrams it appears that the part nos. for the discs are:

Front: 7D0 615 301 C
Rear: 7D0 615 601

Please double-check these before ordering, though. The dealer should be able to tell you, from the chassis no. although you may need to 'remind' them about the uprated front brakes!

HTH.

could be either girling or lucas as mentioned to get it right either get a workshop manual and identify the calipers you have or as the guy said take a pad out and do the tracing.
