    Mine had the recal for the multitronic transmission bearing change at its 3 year end of warranty service..

    Within a month one front wheel bearing had started to whine, replaced by the dealer FOC.

    Then 2 months later the other side started whining so I bought the part and fitted it. Cost £109 just for the bearing, it comes in a holder that is bolted onto the hub carrier.

    Sorry for bumping an old thread but just wondering Zafi which models and years were affected by this multitronic recall?
    Cheers

    Phone a dealer and give them your VIN

    Both front wheel bearings replaced last week at 39000 miles...can't believe I've had three wheel bearings replaced in a car thats 4.5 years old with less than 40k on the clock. Dealer blames the (factory fit) 19" rims. 99% of my driving is motorway...I've had three A4's and my wife two A3's and none have given any trouble, this might be my last Audi...can't keep splashing out £320 every 18 months for a wheel bearing, going to a local tried and tested specialst who'll supply and fit for £133 ( non Audi part)
