Hi Mike,

I have the same problem in my '89 100E. I got quoted $550 for a new 
rack with one year warranty from a local Audi expert in Dallas (not 
the dealer). Not an expert, but I think the rack can be rebuilt, 
just not the same as the earlier 5000 models (supposedly "stronger" 
and will hold up longer prior to leakage). And by the way, Audi in 
Dallas wanted $450 for labor ONLY.
