I would plan on changing the lower and upper hoses, and get a new gasket for the electric switch... you don't want to pull it again because it's leaking... I've had to and it's terrible.

not too bad as I recall, and they lasted 18 years, so why not but the good OE ones?
Under $100 for both hoses as I recall.
Don't forget the thermal switch or at the minimum a gasket for it. (New switches don't come with the gaskets at audi FYI)

Not anymore. Apparently they realized the price was wrong and jacked it up to 476 Euros.
