What are the defects?

Moisture may enter via a gap in the housing of the starter-alternator, potentially causing the component to overheat.

What are the hazards?

If moisture enters the starter-alternator, this could cause the component to overheat. If the component overheats it may catch fire, posing a risk of injury to vehicle occupants, bystanders and/or damage to property.

What should consumers do?

Consumers who notice a smouldering smell while the vehicle is moving should park the vehicle safely outside as soon as possible and contact an Audi dealer.
