I constantly compained of the drip in my garage! Dealer repplaced my Pro shaft seal and 1,500 miles later, my transmission blew- car is useless. Audi will not take responsibility
Seal fixed the problem, 6mm allen head bolt, almost stripped out, very tight.
Finally the trans. blew. Ended up a huge and ugly argument with Audi. (I had been complaining about a slight drip under passengers side for 2 years. I have the paper trail) Fought, fought, fought for my rights with Audi. They think they gave me something but I still paid over $7,000. for repair.
Advise - hang in there and keep your paperwork, they change my wording to, "Customer requests 5 point check-up." My paperwork proved I said, "Customer complains of a leak under passengers side."
