That apparently it's basically the same problem as the front. Which is to say that you cut out part of the sheathing for the flex drive cable, which apparently lengthens with time. I plan to cut it near one end (it curves most at the center) and repair it with marine heat shrink tubing. I have to do all 4, and then I need to do it at least 1 more time because I'm going to go all top gear and turn at least 1 seat pulled from my transmission donor into a chair with powered recline and lumbar.

Interestingly, tilting rear headrests is one of the things the 1997 doesn't have. Also, in 1997 there was an audi badge on each side of the car on the trim strip piece in front of the door. That was pulled in 1998. I should do a photo comparo before I let go.
