What are the defects?

The previous replacement of the rear axle clamping nuts (as part of the recent recall REC-001665) may have caused a misalignment of the rear axle assembly. This could result in excessive wear to the rear tyres, and may result in a sudden flat tyre and subsequent loss of vehicle control.

What are the hazards?

A loss of vehicle control will increase the risk of an accident, causing injury or death to vehicle occupants and other road users.

What should consumers do?

Owners can contact their preferred authorised Audi dealer to make an appointment to have the work carried out free of charge.
