Problem description:

The camshaft drive belt may not be resistant enough. Consequently, it may break or lead to the camshaft-phaser screws to loosen up and the engine oil to leak onto the roadway, increasing the risk of accident to following traffic.

The Audi A3 models affected by this recall were manufactured between December 2013 and September 2014.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Audi dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.

Check the vehicle's history

UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.
