In some respects the OPPOSITE of Autocar
1) Impacts cars delivered or built
2) Seems to only be right hand drive cars
3) Replacement clutch pipe and heat deflector to be fitted ???
4) Audi currently checking parts are available for affected cars
Cars in UK will be priority, followed by cars built to ship (these have been held and will be released) - parts will be fitted at dealership as part of PDI .
Audi desktop was updated this morning and there is a campaign out now. It does only affect RHD vehicles. All that is required is a new pipe to be fitted at master cylinder on bulkhead and a heat sheild as the wrong parts was fitted due to a logistics error. Very simple job. Parts will be availble in next few days and will be carried out at PDI.
