Well, it's _called_ an accelerometer. It's actually a mercury switch.
They were first fitted to the Sport quattro (in transverse orientation) and
they showed up in the ur-quattro/200/5000 in 1988/9. It's a small black
object mounted under the rear seat, with a prominent arrow pointing in the
(usual) direction of travel.
