Trans (?) Spew Revisited - V8

Remember this one?  I was changing the O2 sensor over the weekend and found 
both "upper" and "lower" breather lines (rubber hoses) failed on my V8.  One 
(upper) runs across top of engine, head to head, the other from left side of 
engine (reference the driver seat) to the block.  Both were partially 
disintegrated.  Ordered both from Linda, list 44.65 and 22.15.  Should be here 
Friday.  The back hose (lower in Audi vernacular) is probably the source of 
the periodic leak to the exhaust system and/or floor & consequent smell.  
Great news as far as I am concerned.  Easy fixes.
