What are the defects?

Some nuts fitted to the rear axle assembly did not meet manufacturing specifications and may break. A broken nut may lead to increased movement between the wishbone and hub carrier and a change in the wheel alignment on the rear axle.

What are the hazards?

A sudden uncontrollable movement of the rear axle cannot be ruled out and increases the risk of injury/death to vehicle occupants or other road users.

What should consumers do?

Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted by Audi Australia Pty Ltd and are asked to arrange with their nearest authorised Audi dealership to have the work carried out free of charge.
