Audi recalls Q5 crossover due to problems with fender linersOctober 23, 2019
The current generation of the Audi Q5, assembled at a company in Mexico, may lose the decorative finish of the wheel arch.
If you hear the whistle of wind around your Q5 during the ride, this must have fallen off the corresponding part, since many S55 Q5 models released from 2018 to the present have defective wheel arch trim elements that have not been properly fixed.
As a result, it can weaken or break away from the car. This recall campaign includes 174,278 cars in the United States. Audi first announced a recall in June and since then the number of cars has grown by 48 thousand units. However, according to recent reports, additional cars have problems with only two rear fenders instead of four.
The trim is an element that is attached to the bottom area of each tire. Previously, as part of the recall, the fenders were attached with an additional screw and nut from the bottom, which obviously did not work.
This time, 4 fasteners will replace the rear wheel arches. Owners who have already drilled and screwed all 4 wheel arches will have to visit the brand service center again. The review starts on November 1 of this year.
Earlier it became known that BMW recalls almost all cars manufactured since 2018. The recall campaign will affect the entire BMW, Rolls-Royce Cullinan and Phantom models, as well as the Toyota Supra.
