Yes, Yes.  I'm *SURE* it would be expensive and it is possible to replace
w/ manual crank.  I did the opposite conversion on an '86 VW Quantum Syncro.
(just like an Audi 4000Q, almost....)
I actually went to a junk yard and pulled the electric motor and cover plate
w/ light from another Quantum and put it in the Syncro.  Bolted right up!
I did use the delayed light from the Syncro instead of the plain one from
the other Quantum (involved a little hacking).  The motor mechanism is
identical to the one in the 86 Audi 5000, etc.  I was able to get the motor
for about $30, so it is worth a try, but you can always to manual.
