You can get a rebuilt at this place for a little over $200.
I got one for my 94 S4 from them. It was quite a job to replace it, but if
you do your own work, it can be done with substantial savings. Hardest part
is removing/replacing from the car. If I hadn't removed it, I would swear it
is impossible to wiggle that sucker back in there Check here for tips on doing the job.  HTH
