5000 water deflector

Does anyone know if someone other than Audi makes and sells the plastic cover that is at the base of the windshield that covers the fan blower, wiper linkage etc. It's very thin vacuum formed plastic
and i can't see paying $90 from the dealer if i can get it cheaper someplace else.
Thanks bgc

Of course nobody else makes that. What would be the profit for them? It deformes and sometimes a lot but you can deform it too with the use of a heatgun. Don't forget to put some chewing gum (like stuff) between the windshield and the thing.

No, why would someone else bother to make it? It's not like they are going to sell 50000 of them to get the tooling cost back. Consider a junk yard?

Get the part from a '90 or '91 100 / 200. The material was much thicker and durable. Boneyard should not get more than $10 - $20 for this part.

That's useful to know. I hope it's much more flexible than the cracking rubbish Audi originally used. Get the battery out a few times and it soon breaks. Sharp edges to cut your hands on too :-( And what an inconvenient place to put the battery!
