    Nothing Quattro specific but have a look here.

    Obviously these are serious safety recalls. Audi may have their own.

    Mine's a A3 3.2q 05reg.
    Spoke to dealer and booked it in also something about the wiper motor needs checking too! If this keeps up they will have rebuilt the car!

    The letter gave my reg and chassis no but says the recall relates to quattro A3's.
    Car has been in and checked. They did nt say if it required any work but it has to have the wiper motor changed. They are on back order!

    Thats precisely what they are doing; all motors are replaced FOC as and when the vehicles turn up to Centres. Reason they are on Back Order is because demand has outstripped supply!

    Sorry, this thread doesn't make much sense to me.

    Could someone enlighten me as to what this recall is for?
