Be careful. I think online car parts is part of Autodoc group and my experience with them has been awful.
Mr Auto much better. Part of the PSA (Citroen) group but might not have what you want.
KMS on ebay also good and very helpful if you ring them up.

At a guess, in answer to the original question, 7Zap comes up with this-




But you need to double check. There are options based on model. Audi 90 is too vague. Give year, model, maybe even engine size, to help narrow it down.

In typical fashion, the listing for Audi 90CD only provided details for the left cable.
The part numbers above are for a coupe.

looks like the 7zap web site has the wrong part numbers listed, p/n 857 609 721 D or E is left and right cable for a 1985 on Ur quattro and the diagram on 7zap is for a front wheel drive. You really need to remove the cables and look at both end connection points and measure the inner cable and outer cable length, quattro's normally have a small round grommet and front wheel drive normally have a large oval type grommet, this is if you have rear discs, if you have drums the cables will be different again (but I don't think it will be drums).

Not sure if this is the right part you'll need but I've used this company for parts and had no issues with them.

811 609 722 D 1135mm

Odd part number is for the left side
