Sounds like a broken return spring on the "fresh air flap".  Stand on your head in the passenger footwell, looking up behind the glove box.  See a spring (and/or it's mount) hanging loose?
Fix on my site:

Quattro, I'm just in awe of how incredible this car is in inclement weather. 
I managed the snow storm up here in New England with no problem. It was like 
driving on dry pavement. Only under braking on local roads I felt the ABS 
kick in.

My other Audi, a 1995 90, is just front wheel drive, I always considered good 
in the snow, but I never had any idea what a difference a Quatttro makes. 
When I have the money, some day I hope to upgrade that car to an A4 Quattro 
for my wife, but don't get me wrong, I do love the 90. 

As for the 200, in the snow I have only one beef, but it is no fault of the 
car itself. The car has a new factory replacement windshield, but it was not 
sealed properly. When it snows really, really hard, water drips down the 
inside of the windshield. This also happens when I go to a carwash. Also, 
when it is humid, or I have another person in the car with me, the windows 
fog up almost instantly, and I need to have the defrost on max just to see 
out of the car. Neal, if you are listening, can the dealer fix this for me? I 
am loathe to call Safelite as they have botched jobs on another car I had.
