    They once again diagnosed water in the servo,and said they would let Audi UK know of the problem
    .
    I was then told to let them carry out repairs which would be free of charge.(as a goodwill gesture)
    They replaced the servo, but the service manager was still not happy with the brakes, so they ended up replacing the whole of the braking system (ie master cylinder,vacuum pipes and a valve assembly) they had the car for 5 days and loaned me an Audi Q5 whilst repairs were being carried out..

    The car was returned after all the work had been carried out,fully valeted and the service manager came out for a test drive to make sure I was happy with the repairs

    I have to say that this was a complete about face by Audi uk and I cannot fault the service.

    it's just a shame that it has taken me a long and stressful campaign to reach this very satisfactory conclusion.

    In the end I was treated in a way I would have expected from a company with the reputation of Audi.

    I wish you all the best of luck and now hope this has set a precedent for all others to follow

    Got in the house and checked the forums and found that this is a design fault and audi were not prepared to admit any liability?
    Went to halesowen audi 1st thing monday and have got to say they were fantastic (was expecting a row) they said they would check the service record and see if the car had been recalled,they got back in touch tuesday and said they would book my car in for a full repair at there cost due to damage done from a design fault.They are replacing the servo and modifying the plenum.
    And by the way i dont work for audi.

    Hi latest update from an audi technician they have taken photos for audi. The vacume line (plastic pipe) from the pump to the servo has a heat shield during last service pollen filter was replaced and pipe upset. the heatshield has degraded and collapsed in on its self. new cable ties and modified pipe arrived from audi. He told me he compared my 1 year old car to new version and they all have the modified pipe in place. looks like a design flaw accross the models and they are aware of it . Surely a recall should have been done to prevent acccidents not a happy customer!!!!!

    Remind me what the Audi slogan is again.

    Is it "All bu**ered up"

    I have an Audi 1.9tdi on a 51 plate and I am experiencing the braking problems that many of the contributors have commented on i.e. pedal going hard, no brakes, intermittent fault, locking up all together etc. I finally did some research and found this forum which has been very, very helpful. I have taken the car to an Audi dealership in Bradford and I am awaiting the outcome of their assessment. The servo unit has had a lot of water in it according to the intial inspection form the engineer. I will keep the forum informed about how this progresses.

    Hi there,

    Sorry to Necro a thread but it would seem I am suffering from a similar problem. When the weather gets to freezing my brakes become dangerous, they can become hyper sensitive then when the pedal is applied fully they go rock hard leaving me with very little/no breaking power. Its incredibly dangerous.

    I have spoke to Audi regarding a recall on this model but they have checked my VIN number and refuse to acknowledge the recall. I even had some water coming in to the passenger foot well at one point. (I have kept all the emails)

    I am certain there is water in my braking system due to this only occurring when we have freezing temperatures.

    My Audi is a 51 plate A4 B6

    Any info regarding this issue would be much appreciated.
