Audi A8 Oil Change

Audi A8 – recall and failures

  • The glass sliding roof of vehicles affected may suddenly break, causing the monolayer safety glass to break up into small pieces. This could lead to a road accident. The recall affects vehicles manufactured between March and July 2013.
  • The adhesion of the glass cover on the sunroof may be insufficient due to impurities in the area of the adhesive surfaces. The glass cover may consequently fall onto the road while driving, endangering traffic following behind. The recall concerns vehicles which have been produced between May 2007 and September 2008.
  • Differences in the mixture ratio for the initiating devices for the airbags or seat-belt pre-tensioners could lead to the airbags or seat-belt pre-tensioners not activating in the event of an accident. Recalled are vehicles produced between July 2016 and December 2016.
  • In certain vehicles, fuel can leak onto the engine fuel rail. Fuel leakage close to a source of ignition may increase the risk of the vehicle catching fire. The Audi A8 models affected by this recall were produced between September 2013 and April 2018.
  • A component of the wheel suspension may not be strong enough and could break over time. As a consequence, the tyre may press against the wheel arch which poses a risk of accidents. The Audi A8 models affected by this recall were produced between November and December 2018.
  • The rivets which fix the seat tracks on the passenger side of the vehicle have an unsuitable head diameter. This can cause the rivet connection to fail in the event of an accident, impairing the restraining effect of the seat and belt system and increasing the risk of injuries. The Audi A8 models affected by this recall were manufactured between September 2018 and March 2019.
  • The suspension forks on the rear axle may be defective. As a result, the tyres may come into contact with the wheelhouse, possibly leading to a loss of control over the vehicle and increased risk of an accident. The Audi A8 models affected by this recall were manufactured between 17 and 25 October 2019.
  • The ammonium nitrate propellant used in the airbag inflator may experience a material alteration over time due to degradation occurring after prolonged exposure to high absolute humidity, high temperatures, and high-temperature cycling. In the event of an airbag being deployed, it may underinflate, or the excessive internal pressure may cause the inflator body to rupture and metal fragments may pass through the cushion material causing injury to the occupants. The Audi A8 models affected by this recall were manufactured between 1997 and 1999. Vehicles equipped with Takata NADI (Non-Azide Driver Inflator) airbag inflator.
  • An oil line in the automatic gearbox may have a manufacturing defect. Consequently, the oil may leak out onto the road, posing a risk to the following traffic. The Audi A8 models affected by this recall were manufactured between September and December 2019.
  • The wire coil profile used in the radiator tank seal may be deformed due to the very variable temperatures within the engine compartment. Over time, and under unfavorable conditions, this could lead to the radiator seal coming loose. A loose radiator seal could come into contact with hot components in the engine compartment as a result of vibrations during driving. This could lead to the seal and, potentially, neighboring components starting to smolder, increasing the risk of fire. The Audi A8 models affected by this recall were manufactured between June 2010 and July 2018.
  • Faulty crash sensors for the airbag restraint systems may have been installed in both the front doors. This could impair the protective effect of the side airbags, head airbags, and/or belt tensioners, increasing the risk of injury in the event of an accident. The Audi A8 models affected by this recall were manufactured between July and September 2020.
  • The nuts on the eccentric bolt of the rear-axle spring-link control arm may break due to stress corrosion. As a result, the rear axle could move in the wrong direction, in an uncontrollable manner at high speeds. The Audi A8 models affected by this recall were manufactured between 7 November 2019 and 16 April 2021.
  • Moisture may enter into the engine control unit due to a missing sealing pin in one of the connectors. As a result, the engine may run in an emergency mode with reduced power or stall. The Audi A8 vehicles affected by this recall were manufactured between April 2018 and October 2020.
  • The vehicles are equipped with control software regarded as unauthorized by the competent authorities. The Audi A8 vehicles affected by this recall were manufactured between 2009 and 2018 and were equipped with 3.0 and 4.2 l Euro 6 diesel engines.
  • The functioning of the relevant NADI airbags manufactured by Takata, in particular the gas generator, may be impaired in the vehicles concerned due to the age of the device. In such cases, the protective function of the driver airbag may be reduced when the airbag is activated. The Audi A8 vehicles affected by this recall were manufactured in 2000 and 2001.
