RE:  Cruise Control--I know this may sound silly, but when driving my car 1500
miles home after buying it, the cruise all of a sudden stopped working half
way through the trip for no apparent reason.  Checked switches, lines, vacuum
bladder, etc.  All checked out.  Took a "closer" look and the connecting rod's
little plastic grommet (that likes to break on several other audi's I've
worked with) had broke--thus, when the vaccuum was set, there was nothing for
it to grab onto.

Much to my disappointment, my friend informed me that the dealer sold that
plastic part only with the rod and vacuum--not an option.  So, I fabricated
the EXACT same functioning piece by searching the bins at Home Depot and for a
nickel, I popped it on and it's nylon now and will never break.

Is yours still there?  Just one more thing to check.  I guess the plastic
connecting rod grommet is super brittle being under the Intake Manifold and
likes to break after time.

Hope that's one more place to look.
