Hi guys,

I decided to investigate a fault code on my car about a failure in the 
automatic headlight adjustment. Turns out that the height sensor on the 
front left suspension is dead.

Easiest approach would obviously be to just get a new one from the 
dealer, but they quoted me north of £60, and I'm reluctant to give Audi 
this much for what is essentially a pot in a box, especially in a month 
where I've already shelled out for a new dash, a new air-con condensor, 
insurance, 40k mile service... (otoh after that list £60 seems like 

Just wondering if anyone has any experience fixing these things, or has 
any ideas for alternative sources.
