Airbag Safety Recall | Audi UK

Airbag safety recall

The worldwide recall of Takata airbags affects many manufacturers, including Audi models. These airbags have been installed in some vehicles between 2005-2018. If the airbag is triggered in an accident, the pressure generated when the gas generator is ignited may be too high. This can result in pieces of metal being ejected inside the vehicle. Enter your vehicle identification number (VIN) below to check whether your vehicle is affected. The list of vehicles is updated regularly, therefore, please check here on a recurring basis whether your vehicle is affected.

Where do I find my VIN number?

A VIN is a 17 digit code that is unique to a specific car, it starts with 'WAUZZZ'. This is printed in various places in your car such as the bottom corner of the windscreen on the passenger side, on your V5 registration document and it may have been given to you on your delivery/handover paperwork.

What do you have to do?

If your vehicle is affected, please contact your local Audi Centre immediately or use our Online Service Booking tool and select 'Warranty Repair or Service/ Recall Campaign' to have the relevant components replaced. This will take about an hour and is free of charge for you. Your safety is important to us, so please have your vehicle checked and repaired immediately.
