Audi dealer will be happy to sell you any part for any car. It should be a straight swop. However it is not a quick / easy job to change the grill.

Hi, My steering rack was replaced Free of Charge. It is disappointing that your dealer has been less than helpful. Dealers get a much reduced fee for repairing warranty faults from Audi than they would charge an owner.

Ok..So the faults been diagnosed as a breakdown of the steering rack (not wear and tear as they mentioned) @ 17,500 miles.

They are wanting 3k for a new one. Any advise would be welcomed greatly. No mention of help via a goodwill gesture.
What are Audi UK CS like are they any good in these situations?
I'm only 5 months outside warranty and in the last year have only driven 2k due to working from home ect.... should I have seen driving more then I guess the fault would have presented it self earlier. The AA who towed the car said that the rack should go for ages before failing.

Same issue I had with my old Q5.
Who is your dealer?
Have you owned since new with full dealer service history?

No idea about this warning. Perhaps failure of the power steering ecu module? Did you notice any issues, e.g. did the steering become heavier?
I did have the steering rack replaced under warranty on my old Q5.
I did have the ecu fail on my A3, the steering became incredibly heavy.

Audi are more generous to first owner with full dealer service history.
