Defect: The rear brake line on top of the de Dion tube impacts on differential carrier securing bolts when suspension is at full travel. The concern was initially identified when investigating feedback from race car drivers on the de Dion tube hitting the differential carrier bolts. There have been no reported brake line failures to date from the field or during internal testing. Rear brake line may become crushed and eventually fail, thus affecting rear brake operation.
Action: Fit differently routed brake line.

Recall: No. 2 of 3
Recall Ref: R/2014/062
Exact Model: S3 SV and CSR
VIN: SDK*********70783 to SDK*********71754
Build Date: May 2013 to April 2014
Numbers: 186
Defect: There is a small possibility that the throttle pedal securing bolt may work loose. This can only occur if as a minimum the securing bolt is not tightened sufficiently to completely flatten the spring washer. The bolt may work free during pedal operation. This will result in the throttle pedal coming free from its chassis anchor point causing an inability to operate the throttle pedal and an immediate reduction in engine speed.
Action: Recall the affected vehicles and check that the throttle pedal Cable Post is not in contact with the head of the throttle pedal securing bolt ensure that the bolt is tightened to 25Nm and that the throttle pedal is free to operate to the full extent of its travel in both directions.
Launch Date: 16 June 2014
Recall: No. 3 of 3
Recall Ref: R/2013/154
Exact Model: S3 & SV
VIN: SDK**********0360 to SDK**********1415 (SV), SDK**********0360 to SDK**********1415 (S3)
Build Date: June to October 2013
Numbers: 33
Defect: Incorrect steering rack mounting bolts may have been fitted. As a result one or more of the heads on the 4 steering rack securing bolts may fracture due to embrittlement. This may present itself to the owner visually by missing bolt head/s and/or bolts from the steering rack securing brackets. This may lead to reduced steering control and ultimately loss of steering if all bolts were to fracture.
Action: Recall the vehicles that are likely to be affected to replacement all 4 steering rack securing bolts and associated Nyloc nuts and washers.
Launch Date: 23 December 2013
