In specific Audi models, extended exposure to moisture may lead to an inadequate inflation of the driver-front airbag during a collision.

- AUDI A6 – 1998, 1999

In the event of a crash necessitating an airbag deployment, there is a potential risk of the driver-front airbag not inflating correctly, posing a safety hazard to the driver.
Recommended Course of Action:
The manufacturer will communicate with owners through mail. Please be aware that there may be a substantial delay before replacement parts become available. Once these replacement parts are ready, a second letter will be sent to instruct you to visit an authorized dealer for an inspection of the driver-front airbag inflator. If necessary, the inflator will be replaced with an improved component.
