Re: 200 blower replacement

I'd guess it is the result of trying to use the same parts, year after year, 
on new models.  It's the same type of box on the 90 V8 as I had on the 86 
5KTQ.  I've changed 'em both. You are correct on the design issue.  A redesign 
costs big bucks and Audi is trying to save the $ for more interesting part
