I went to my local Pep Boys and bought generic windshield sprayer hose (3/32?)..

It was a bitch to get on the nub on the sprayer pump (seemed just a tad too
small). I finally slipped the hose over the end of a larger philips screwdriver,
Then I used a butane lighter and cooked the rubber slightly to keep it from
shrinking back to a 'too small' shape. Did the trick nicely. After 45 minutes of
Audi speak (^&%$$$$#)...   :-)
