RepairPal Expert Overview
A fuel leak may develop during extreme driving conditions, increasing the risk of a fire.
We at RepairPal have designated this as a medium priority recall; this would change to high if your driving habits are "extreme." Please contact your Audi dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you as to what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
Under extreme driving conditions, fuel can leak from the fuel tank vent valve. The internal spring may be too weak to hold the valve closed. Any fuel leak increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the affected valve with an improved design. The recall is expected to begin by November 16, 2009. The Audi recall number is 20Q3/J3.
