OREANDA-NEWS. Volkswagen Group Rus LLC, which is the official representative of Audi in the Russian Federation, recalls 9 thousand 469 cars of the Q5 model. We are talking about crossovers sold from 2017 to the present, the Rosstandart said.

"The reason for the recall of vehicles is that due to the torsional displacement, the protrusion of the rear wheel arch lining can come off the mounts. As a result, the fastening of the wheel arch lining can weaken and in some cases, the lining can completely separate", the message says.

On cars that fall under the review, it is necessary to fix the protrusion of the wheel arch lining with two modified clips, according to Rosstandart. All repairs will be free to owners. Recall that in early August 2019, in addition to problems with overlays, several Audi Q5 crossovers revealed a defect in the front panel, which could lead to insufficiently fastened front passenger airbags. The owners were invited to the service for a free replacement of the entire front panel.
