Audi's kind of slick.  THEIR grease/oil seals are
all/mostly odd widths.  Like the e-brake cam seal.
16mm x 24mm x "7"mm.?  I think that's the size.  Nope,
nobody has it.  BUT they do have 6mm or 8mm thick.  I
went with 6mm.  I just drove the shell flush with the
casting.  They were like $2 and change each.  In stock
at the bearing supplier.  I have found this odd
thickness with several seals.  O.D. and I.D. are the
only IMPORTANT #'s.
