Thanks again everyone for helping me out so far. My a4 is coming along nicely and will soon be my full time DD. I'm finishing up some things and this is on my to do list. I first need to figure out what the heck it is and what I need to do with it. It looks like some type a sensor that is sitting just in front of my washer fluid tank. Any help?

Is it the fluid level sensor? Kind of hard to tell with the glare on in that pic

Ok. The car has a 97 tank put in it (some other things didn't match up right) so I went to the junkyard and got another tank from a 2000, same as mine, but it doesn't have a spot to put the sensor. Can I drill a hole and epoxy it in place? I don't want the low washer light flashing all of the time.

You can just short it with a paper clip. It is just looking for some continuity through the sensor to shut the light off. I think it bugs you way too much anyway. Always crying wolf about the fluid being low.

Done deal. I'll wrap a wire around it and put some shrink wrap around it.
