    This just came out on Friday. Apparently there is a final fix for some, but not all of the airbag inflators subject to the recall.

    I got my notice a few months before this one you've posted. I wonder how long it will take for them to send this 'final solution' out to everyone affected.

    Just thought I'd chime in to say that my recall repair was scheduled for this past Friday, June 29th. I dropped my car off around 1pm and after a bit of a fiasco involving my loaner vehicle I was on my way. By 6pm that evening I had a message saying the car was ready to pick up, which really surprised me. Another service adviser met with me when I came in to pick up the car and confirmed the passenger airbag was replaced. Apparently this can be done through the glovebox and does not require removal of the entire dash. That was reassuring because the last thing I wanted was a squeak or rattle behind the dash because the poor tech was busting tail to get the job done.

    As far as I know, it does not require removal of the dash but only dropping down the entire glove box which is sufficient. Believe me I wouldn't want that either and there is no way it will ever be the same again once they started tampering with it. That said, I have not received anything at all about this final recall except the first one I had done about a year ago..

    I put my vin on the list three/four months ago, still no phone call about even the interim. I should probably give them a call and see whatís up (NH)

    Probably just forgot I existed but Iíve gotten a few recall notices in between then and now just been lazy and had faith they wouldíve called me lol

    I had my interim fix scheduled for mid-June and a few days before had it cancelled by Audi as the final repairs are rolling out. Now I have the final repair schedule for next week but I was sure pleased they called me and didn't waste my time with the interim if the final was so close behind

    Glad I never bothered taking mine in for the interim, now will just wait on a final fix instead.

    I took mine in for the first one and received a nice dent on my door. Got it it pulled out but paint is still chipped. I wonder how my luck would be on the final visit.

    I took mine in sat and got a 2018 Q7 fully loaded for a loaner for the weekend very nice and picked up my car this morning so far so good. They did have a 2015 s4 that I guess some one traded or was the end of their lease. Might need to go give that a closer look.

    Lucky! My dealership told me they don't provide loaners for recalls or warranty repairs so they have a "premium shuttle service"...Or as everyone else calls it; Uber.

    Its literally Uber. They pay for my Uber.

    Got my letter for the final fix and made an appointment for next Thursday. I get a loaner. Odd how different dealers are with loaners etc. Anyways, happy I will soon be able to have a passenger sit in the front and not worry about shrapnel killing them. Yes I had the temporary fix but honestly never trusted it.

    Hmm, strange I haven't receive anything in the mail yet of this final recall. Perhaps I'll just make an appointment with the dealer. They go by VIN anyway. Oh yeah, getting a loaner in southern CA is like pulling teeth. Probably gonna end up with a huge ass Ford F-150 like last time.

    I did the interim fix a month or so ago, and just received another recall letter for the final fix. Looks like another drive to the dealership. Think I'll remove my glovebox ahead of time this time, but will definitely let them do the wash this time.

    Well hell, just received the letter today. Mine didn't say anything about permanent fix, just "repair immediately even though a temporary repair was done recently".

    The dealership I went to got it done in just under two hours and that was without me taking out the glovebox. If I don't have the glovebox there, that should simplify things and Save 10 or 15 minutes. Three to four hours to me says either they're slacking or accept substandard work performance..

    Agreed. Just quoting what I was told via the phone convo I had with the dealer. I figure it should only take about an hour or two at most..

    it took over 4 to do mine in and out .. but it sat in the parking lot for 3 .. I didn't much care , I had my laptop and ate their snacks and drank their coffee and looked at their hot sales associates (female - not that there is anything wrong with that ) )

    So a lil update for you all that have yet to get this done.

    I have been waiting almost 6 hours (still am waiting) and my car STILL isn't done yet. I mean, I also am getting a new key programmed too but just a heads up - it may end up taking a portion of your day..

    Got my airbag replaced today, finally. It took months of calling, trying to get on the wait list, having one appointment cancelled, but its done. Took a half day (I left the car in the morning, it was done by noon). The service tech confirmed that this is the permanent replacement, not a temporary one that will have to be done again sometime.

    Same here. Forgot to post earlier that I had mine done last week with no issues. Got a nice loaner and the dealership was actually a pleasant experience. Took about 3 hours but then again I told them I was in no rush.

    Mine is scheduled for tomorrow (Fri 7/27). Hope I get my car back in one piece this time when done. I requested a loaner while booking this ordeal two weeks ago. We'll see how that goes.

    Had mine done today. Two local dealers did not have them in stock yet, but a third did (Palisades Audi). No problems with the swap, and really enjoyed the 2018 A4 loaner. Nice power and a very responsive transmission in dynamic mode.

    We have been getting about 10-15 cars in daily at the Audi dealer I work at for takata recalls. Between B7 and C6 A6's I personally am doing like 3-4 a day. We all know the glovebox can be removed in all of 5 minutes, swapping out the airbag itself takes 5-10 mins at max. The longest part is the beginning where we have to hook up the scan tool and run a test plan for the airbag replacement. That in itself takes a few minutes to do, providing there is a scan tool available to use and if the scan tool actually connects to the car and works properly. The store I am at shares something like 15 ODIS laptops between the vw shop and the audi shop and at any given moment half of them do not work correctly, the other half have dead batteries and need to be charged and the remaining 2 that work perfectly are hidden in someones toolbox so they can use them exclusively. Oh and afterwards every car gets washed and vacuumed by the cleanup dept. But real talk lol, half hour for me to complete the recall from when I pull the car in the shop until I pull it out and park it for cleanup.
