What are the defects?

Due to incorrect welding, the gap on the adjusting mechanism for the backrest of the front seats may be faulty.

What are the hazards?

In the event of a rear collision, the backrest adjuster could break, increasing the risk of injury to vehicle occupants. In the event of a serious accident, this could result in death of a vehicle occupant.

What should consumers do?

Audi Australia Pty Ltd will contact all known owners of affected vehicles. Consumers should contact their nearest Audi dealer to arrange for inspection and repair if needed. As parts will need to be ordered for individual vehicles, a courtesy car will be available if there will be any delay.
