Due to a manufacturing defect in the instrument panel, the deployment of the airbag could be impeded.
This could impair its protective potential and could lead to plastic parts become detached when the airbag is activated, increasing the risk of injury in the event of an accident.
The Audi A7 models affected by this recall were manufactured between December 2017 and December 2020.
