Question Answered: 

Sounds like a good car that qualifies for "parting out" Window regulator: $89 at FCP Groton, with motor. If the cables aren't frayed, the regulator can be fixed with JB Weld for 5 bucks. Hood release, there's a coupler on the drivers side firewall that is pot metal, they break. $2.00 fix. Left strut repl: hundreds! Radio led lights faded: not worth replacing, but if you want it like new: hundreds. Airbag lights: first find out if it has unactivated airbags. Power steering: couple of hundred, common problem on ALL Aryan cars: VW, Porsche, Mercedes,Audi, etc they all use the same defective power steering reservoir and associated bad hoses. There has never been an upgrade. Someone's brother in law must have made a constitutional amendment where all german cars HAVE to use the defective setup. Ludicrous.

Come on people, if you don't know, you don't know, the guy is looking for an answer, not "take it to a repair shop" Any idiot can figure that one out. If you've got steam, or a leak coming from the right side of the engine, there's a 3/8" cooling hose that connects just below the intake manifold, on the right side, or drivers side of the engine. I believe it terminates at the throttle intake to a sensor to sense warm up fuel/air mixture for the computer. I've repaired my leak without taking the intake off. I did not repair the other end, as it was not leaking.
