Hello Janet

it does look Like Audi sell a replacement section

see here

So its worth trying your local audi dealer to see if they can provide this part

however i would say that its likely to be a special order part only as its not the sort of thing that is replaced very often

If you need a quick repair I'd suggest to contact a local auto electrician whom would be able to make repairs - often at a very reasonable price as it would be a few hours work at most from your description
