My "new" '86 5kcsqt has this problem so I went out to my favourite local wrecker.  They wouldn't sell the switch seperately, so I bought the entire 
steering column for $50.  More than I wanted to spend, but maybe I can fix the broken switch and keep it as a spare.  The nice part is that it's an easy 
part to test, mind you, I don't know how much life it has left.

Somethings I avoid going to Audi places because they know the value of what they have.  ie: got a cruise control module and a couple of window switches 
for $50.  The local Audi dealer wanted something astronomical (~$650?) for the CC alone.

My advice is to call a few wreckers and ask if they have any Audi's.  It did take me a while to find a place that had enough Audi's to make finding parts
