Air conditioning service

We recommend your air-conditioning system is serviced every two years to make sure it’s running at maximum efficiency.

Our Audi Trained Technicians will top-up the gas in the system as well as perform a detailed inspection of the air conditioning unit.

Between services an air-conditioning refresh is also available. This ultrasonic treatment disinfects any microbial, fungal and bacterial particles, so the air in your car is as pure as it should be.

Our air conditioning service is available at any Audi Centre.

If your car is three years or older and privately owned, visit our Fixed price services page for information on our fixed price offers.


Audi tyres

Your Audi's tyres are vital for acceleration, steering and braking, and are key factors in fuel economy and reducing CO2 emissions. Even tyres with the legal minimum tread depth of 1.6mm take longer to stop than brand new ones.

To help maintain your safety, Audi Trained Technicians can check the tread depth, pressure, appearance and condition of your tyre as part of a complementary health check, available at any time.

Audi offers a range of premium tyres at competitive prices. Our online tyre quotation service will help you find the right tyres for your Audi at the right price.


Cam belt change

The cam belt is one of the hardest working components in an engine. Made from a rubber based compound that deteriorates with time, it should be checked and replaced every five years or as per the mileage specified in your Audi service schedule – whichever comes first.

Cam belt replacement is a complex job, but by entrusting your car to us you can be confident that the work is being done by experienced Audi trained technicians.

You can also take advantage of our fixed price cam belt service at any Audi Centre. If your car is three years or older and privately owned, visit our Fixed price services page for information on our fixed price offers.

Brake fluid

Brake fluid is hygroscopic, which means it absorbs moisture over time, reducing the temperature at which the fluid boils. This could result in increased stopping distances, reduced braking efficiency and even brake failure.

Your local Audi Centre will be able to advise you on when your brake fluid should be checked and changed.

You can also take advantage of our fixed price brake fluid service at any Audi Centre. If your car is three years or older and privately owned, visit our Fixed price services page for information on our fixed price offers.


Transmission fluid

Your Audi's transmission fluid acts as both a lubricant and coolant to your transmission system. Wear and tear breaks down the viscosity of transmission fluid, making it less effective and potentially causing damage to other components.

To make sure your gear changes remain seamless, your transmission fluid should be changed according to your service schedule every 38,000 miles.

AdBlue

From September 2015, the majority of new diesel cars will feature an AdBlue injection system. This allows for cleaner, more efficient cars, lower Nitrogen Oxide and CO2 emissions and better fuel economy.

Manufacturers have developed a treatment system called ‘Selective Catalyst Reduction’ (SRC), which converts nitric oxide into less harmful nitrogen and water. AdBlue is a non-toxic, non-flammable, odourless and biodegradable reducing agent that makes this conversion possible.

You may be required to top up your Adblue tank between services. You can refill the tank yourself when alerted by your Driver Informations System, or take your car to an Audi Authorised Repairer.

Audi supplies AdBlue for £1.50 per litre, including VAT and labour. Contact your local Audi Centre or watch the video for more about AdBlue.


General Diagnostic Investigation

If you have a concern with your Audi our technicians will carry out an initial diagnostic investigation.

Our highly trained Audi technicians use our most advanced diagnostic equipment to carry out the initial investigation. We will then contact you to discuss the next steps which will either be a firm quotation for the repair, or for more complex issues, an estimate for additional diagnosis.


Audi S tronic oil change

Your Audi's S Tronic transmission is engineered to give you seamless gear changes. To ensure the continuous smooth running of your transmission it is essential that the oil is changed no later than every 38,000 miles. Watch our video to find out more about what happens during an S tronic oil change.
