Happened to me on the 1982 80CD.  That piece of braid is just copper and 
completely exposed to all the disgusting things that go on under the car.  Audi 
wanted GBP140 ($200) for a new motor - I stripped a piece of standard battery 
braid and soldered it in.  The car is still running six years later.
