8 Recalls for 1997 AUDI A4

Recall Date Component Summary
July 1, 2022 AIR BAGS:FRONTAL:DRIVER SIDE:INFLATOR MODULE

(Audi) is recalling certain 1998 Audi A8 and 1997-1998 Audi A4 vehicles equipped with Non-Azide Driver air bag Inflators (NADI) that do not contain phase stabilized ammonium nitrate (PSAN) propellant.

Remedy:

Dealers will replace the driver’s air bag inflator with an alternative inflator of a different design, free of charge. Owner notification letters were sent September 21, 2021. Owners may contact Audi customer service at 1-800-253-2834. Audi’s number for this recall is 69BT. The vehicles in this recall were mistakenly omitted from recall 20V-056.
