Audi is recalling a single model year 2019 Audi Q3.
Production deviation in the belt pully can prevent the circlip from properly engaging the steering rack.
As a result, the circlip can detach and catch on surrounding components, causing the steering system to lock and increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Audi will notify the owner, and a dealer will replace the steering rack free of charge.
The recall began February 4, 2021.
Owners may contact Audi customer service at (800) 253-2834. Audi's number for this recall is 48P7.
