    I had a bearing in the diff changed as a recall item at the 3 year service.

    A couple of weeks later I heard a whining sound and the nearside front wheel bearing was changed FOC by the dealer.

    Now the offside front wheel bearing has started whining so I swapped that myself as the car is almost 2 months out of warranty.

    Anyone else had the recall work done?

    Anyone else had front wheel bearings go shortly afterwards?

    Car is a 2010 143 tdi multitronic. Never missed a beat until it was out of warranty ;)

    Audi only do recalls for safety issues. Anything else they'd pick up on the next time it was in.
