Nope ... you've got to replace the gear and lock cylinder since Audi offers
a new-and-improved design that is supposed to correct this problem.  I paid
$22.38 with shipping for the parts from Linda @ Carlsen Audi and they are a
*big* pain to install for someone like myself who has large hands.  It took
me approx. 30 minutes to get the old one out and 2 hours to get the new one
in ... no tricks that I could see, just straightforward slogging.  Enjoy!
