Chronology :

October 19, 2021: A defect on the joining tool for the tailgate of the Q5 Sportback was discovered. The defective parts of the joining tool were replaced and the monitoring values for the joining process were corrected.

October – November 25, 2021: The affected production period and the stock of affected assemblys was verified. All parts in production were blocked and reworked. The issue is reported to the Audi Product Safety Committee.

Dezember 2021 – June 2022: Tailgates from the production in Mexico were send to Ingolstadt for extensive testing. Parts that have been built according to manufacturing specification and faulty parts with the rework solution, which had to be built on purpose, were subjected to various test routines to verify the impact on stiffness and rigidity. The tailgates were dismantled and the clinch connections were cut open and analyzed to validate the impact on the connection between the two metal sheets. The scope of vehicles in the field that did not receive a rework while in production was verified.

July 27, 2022: The Audi Product Safety Committee decides a voluntary worldwide safety recall for the affected vehicles that did not receive rework while in production.

Audi is not aware of any warranty claims or customer claims due to this issue.
