A recall has just been released within the last 48 hours, it's to do with the fuel system. 

 

What I can gather, the RS3 Chucks a EML stating fuel pressure is low of some description. So Audi are replacing certain modules to prevent this. In other words bypassing the problem. 

 

This is what an Audi tech told me while I was at Audi, having warranty work and I had this recall carried out. First in the UK apprenalty. 

 

 

Oh crap! Wrong section of forum

Are you sure this is a recall? I thought Audi only replaced the fuel pressure module if the car actually breaks down
and stops like mine did a couple of weeks ago.

100% I got the call from Audi saying, a re call came out today and we will be doing it while your vehicle is with us... this was on Thursday.

Apparently the fuel system / pump recall only affects RS3’s built in 2016

Hi,

 

Does anyone have the recall/TPI/whatever number for 2016 RS3 Fuel Pump Module ? 

 

Mine has failed and I've been charged 1200£ for the replacement ...

Free under warranty.

If not the module itself was around £130 and easy to fit.

Mine was replaced back in 2017 for the same reason, though the latest recall involves a newer design for the pump compared to the ones they replaced back in 2017, so it has been done a second time.
