The head curtain airbag may tear and fail to protect vehicle occupants

Audi is recalling 5,224 model year 2022-2023 Q4 E-Tron SUVs and Q4 E-Tron Sportbacks.

During deployment, the head curtain airbag could deform the door seal and expose the metal inlay within the seal, which could tear the air bag.

A torn airbag cannot protect occupants in a crash as intended, increasing the risk of injury.

What to do

Dealers will install cloth tape in the driver and front passenger B-pillar area free of charge.

Letters notifying owners of the issue are expected to be mailed May 19, 2023.

Owners may contact Audi's customer service at (800) 253-2834. Audi's number for this recall is 69FA.
