    Good morning gents.
    New here after a bit of reading I’ve decided to join to hello.
    First time I’ve owned an Audi and have 2017 A4 Black Edition, bought second hand.
    Any how, my query is in the attached pictures. Whilst retrieving the boys football I noticed these boots or pads split. I’ve only had the car 3 weeks.
    Is this a problem or MOT failure. If it’s likely to be an issue I’ll approach the garage with it.
    Thanks for your time and hope you’re all well and safe.

    It’s the rubber cup that the spring sits on.

    Seems that it’s been off and put back a little bit wrong.

    A garage could take them off and fit them properly if needed I’d assume.

    Looks to me like there is some corrosion going on inside the cup, maybe the bottom of the spring and this has swollen and split the already perished spring cup.
    I’d be asking for them to be replaced
