Hi, i have an Audi a4 1.8t FWD. I'm trying to find the ABS ring that is suppose to be on the back of the rotors but i can't seem to find any. Can anyone help me out?

Do you mean where it's located on your own ride, or where to purchase a replacement?

From memory, the ABS ring is actually part of the outer axle joint.

FWD models dont have an axle in the rear...

your front ones are located on the outer end of your axles

your rear ones should be pressed onto the hubs...

I'm referring to the fronts, not the non-driven rears.

on an FWD, there are these ABS rings that can be found behind the rotors, here is a video of what the ring looks like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWvARnYtW0A . does anyone know where i can purchase these?

that video showed the rear. not the front fyi

on your FWD car they should be part of the axle. you can't "just" buy them. you need to get new axles.

It's pressed on the hub. I tried to weld it since it broke in two... it's no go. I need a new/used hub.

We have a guy who welds these all the time at our shop, mostly on the rear of Lexus RX300's and Highlanders and such. You can weld them, but you gotta have mad skillz.

I looked at the video (again the video is the REAR Rotor Assembly NOT the front), you said you where looking for the front. Therefore if your looking for the ABS ring on he front rotors its not going to be there because its on the Axle as seen in the photo a few post up The front ABS rings are on the axle, the rear ones are built into the rear hub. If its not there then you need to purchase new hubs.

i apologize. i forgot to mention it was for the REAR BRAKES, on a FWD car. im looking for that exact piece i was talking about inside the rotor.

EDIT: the guy in the video says its the ABS RING, i don't think its called the ABS ring at all. its that ring that is inside the rotor in the begining of the video!

Okay now that we have an understanding of what your exactly looking for.

You are looking for that piece that looks like a gear correct? If so that IS the ABS ring and can not be bought separately from the rear hub assembly.

It is called as ABS Ring and I replaced mine a year ago with the below cheap ones from Autopartswarehouse..

When my previous owner did the brake/hub, somebody actually forgot to put these abs rings back. My ABS light was constantly ON for a long time. I then took it my mechanic and he said it is missing two rear ABS sensor/speed rings. I bought the above one, installed and everything was back to normal..
