What are the defects?
The bolted connection between the steering shaft and the steering rack may not be tightened to the required torque, which could lead to the bolted connection loosening.
What are the hazards?
If the bolted connection loosens the driver may lose control of the steering, which could cause an accident and injury to vehicle occupants or other road users.
What should consumers do?
Audi Australia Pty Ltd is contacting all known owners of affected vehicles. Consumers should contact their nearest Audi Dealer to arrange for inspection of the steering shaft and a replacement where necessary.
Consumers should not operate their vehicle until it has been inspected and repaired, where necessary by an authorised Audi dealer.
