    Hey all

    just a heads up

    i have received a recall for the alternator from audi today in post

    spoke to service advisor this morning for something else and he said the bulletin went out for recall on 17th (my car was at the dealer 15th!!!)

    they want the car off the road and in their hands asap as its a safety recall but couldn't give me an appointment And will call back

    I believe its the 40 & 45 TFSI. I bought a 2019 Coupe on 8th June and am still waiting to collect due to this recall. They hope to get the car to me next week.

    Correct you are cobra2

    here is the official notice


    Moisture can penetrate into the belt starter generator (RSG – Riemen-Starter-Generator).

    This can result in a short circuit, leading to local overheating and increased risk of fire.

    Due to the permanent power supply of the starter generator, this can occur when the vehicle has already been parked for a while.

    The Audi A5 models affected by this recall were equipped with 2.0 TFSI engines and Mild-Hybrid systems and manufactured between May 2017 and March 2020.

    Audi recall code: 27H2
