From memory, the rear ones are the ones with the cut outs, the front ones the drilled hole.
However, I wouldn't worry. I didn't spot the difference initially. It was only when I tried to attach a front one to the rear that I found it didn't fit. I'm pretty sure a rear one won't fit on the front, so it'll be obvious.
By the way, assuming you're fitting it yourself, don't make the mistake I made.
I bought a cheap Rivnut gun from ebay - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/86pcs-Thread ... _Auction=1
It exploded the first time I tried it.
I then made an emergency trip to Machine Mart. They told me that those are fine for aluminium rivnuts but no use on the steel ones in the set and sold me one of these https://www.machinemart.co.uk/p/clarke- ... t-riveter/
Not only did it make short work of the rivnuts, but it fitted neatly under the car without the need to jack it up.
