Hi Tom:

Yes, It is Lance Russel at Quattro South in Black Mountain, NC.

Actually, he has my S4 right now as it died on the side of I-26 this morning while delivering my son to daycare on the way to work.

I wish it was as easy as just loosening the banjo bolt and rotating to get to the clamp, but it is the front clamp that is facing up and not the rear clamp.  I believe that I can reach the clamp with a pair of wire dikes and snip through the clamp band and then just replace the clamp.



I think if you remove the banjo bolt on the other end you can  
probably twist the hose and clamp together to where you can get a nut  
driver on the clamp screw.
You can do most of this by feel if you capture the washers when you  
remove the bolt and force the hose on the tubing first when  
installing but tighten the clamp

Is this friendly local Audi repair man named Lance?  Probably no  
reason not to give him a plug since good shops for s-cars are getting  
more difficult to find.
