These vehicles were previously repaired with an interim repair of installing butyl tape to the fuel pump flange, until replacement remedy parts became available.
The butyl tape may not prevent fuel from leaking. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source can increase the risk of a fire.
What to do
Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel pump flange and install butyl tape, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin December 31, 2018.
Owners may contact Audi customer service at (800)-253-2834. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 20BJ.
