My new to me A6 Avant

Well it has finally happened, I have the A6 Avant that I have been chasing
for over 3 weeks.
The Saab/Volvo dealer got a working starter motor fitted and I was able to
test it and bought it.
I beat them down on price due to a couple of issues that I need more input

1. Ignition switch is real stiff (must have killed original starter) Is it
best to get at from above or below
and is the part #4A0 905 849B
2. The transfer case is leaking onto the cats. From the few emails I had so
far it looks like could be gasket between gearbox and torsen #01F 321 381A
or the output shaft seal #01E 409 400 (018 409 399B ?)
Has anyone BTDT on fixing this leak. It does not look too bad once the cats
have been removed.
3. I have no radio code and need to give the serial # to a dealer, problem
is how do you get the radio out ? Looks like some kind of tool into the 2
slots at the bottom of the face plate, this is the Delta CC unit.
Thanks all,
