BRAKE CALIPERS

2004 Volkswagen GLI

Brakes problem
2004 Volkswagen GLI 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 80000 miles

i had the seal on my driverside brake caliper bust so I took it off and ordered a new one. I have ordered from 6 diff. Places including dealership and its always.8 inches short(not wide enough) the dealerships say there is only one size and that the one they gave me is the right one when I hold them up next to each other and they are not the same size. The dealership says the ones on my car are stock and have not been tampered with or replaced. The size of caliper they are giving me fit for a car with a 232mm x 9mm rotor but mine has a 256 x 22 rotor. Have you heard of this before?
