Fuel Line Leaks In Engine Compartment

Recall Details

The fuel line in the engine compartment may leak due to a failure of a quick connector at the fuel supply line. Dealers will secure the fuel line connection as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

A fuel line connector that attaches hoses that carry fuel together may detach and cause fuel to leak in the engine compartment. This can cause the engine to stall and a fire hazard.

What Should You Do?

Recall repairs on your Audi must be performed by a Audi dealership. Audi will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in February, 2019.
