Yes, the car is a 20V.  Yes, the sensor install is odd.  You'd think
they would put in in-line connector downstream if they were going to
weld the wires on...  At least the location is better than the 10V; talk
about sticking out like a sore thumb!

I am going to test and probably replace the sensor (regardless of
results due to the intermittent nature of the problem), as time allows,
and see if life gets better.  I'll post results.  It may be a while
before I get to it; unfortunately, I suddenly have other issues.  My
wife's A6 is intermittently throwing misfire codes.

Thanks for the input.
