Audi A3 – recall and failures

  • The bolt of the pressure-input shaft situated between the electromechanical brake servo and the brake pedal may come loose. As a result, the mechanical connection between the brake pedal and the brake servo would no longer be guaranteed, increasing the risk of an accident. In the event of an emergency, the vehicle can be immobilised by activating the electronic parking brake. The Audi A3 vehicles affected by this recall were manufactured between 24 August 2020 and 19 July 2021.
  • The camshaft drive belt may not be resistant enough. Consequently, it may break or lead to the camshaft-phaser screws to loosen up and the engine oil to leak onto the roadway, increasing the risk of accident to following traffic. The Audi A3 models affected by this recall were manufactured between December 2013 and September 2014.
  • The headrest fitting on the rear seats may be defective. As a result, the support and protection provided by the headrest in the event of an accident could be impaired, increasing the risk of an injury. The Audi A3 models affected by this recall were manufactured between 17 February and 1 March 2019.
  • The locking pin for securing the head restraints may be missing from the central rear seat. In the event of an accident, the central rear head restraint may consequently become detached from the guide rods and lose its supportive and protective effect. The Audi A3 models affected by this recall were produced between April and June 2018.
  • The fitting for the headrest may have been incorrectly welded to the backrest. As a consequence, the supportive and protective effect of the headrest may be limited in the event of an accident. The Audi A3 affected with this recall were manufactured between calendar week 22 2018 and calendar week 31 2018.
  • The fatigue strength of the rear axle stub may be insufficient. This could result in failure of the rear axle stub with consequent loss of control of the vehicle. The recall affects vehicles manufactured in August 2017.
