What is that? The VW and the Audi uses the same cruise control technology
and components (at least on my '87 4000 SQ). A vacuum canister is activating
the throttle linkage. The vacuum canisters are identical, the mounting
bracket and the rod length attaching to the throttle might be different.
There is also a motorized vacuum pump - the cc does not work off the manifold
vacuum - vacuum and electrical switches on the brake and clutch, hall-effect
speed sensor at the speedometer, control box with the electronics and
the control switches on the stalk. Do you have all the others?

Good luck, Peter
