Regular Maintenance

To keep your Audi in top condition throughout its life, it will need regular scheduled maintenance. Find out more about the key features of your Audi and what the most important areas of your cars maintenance are.

Air conditioning service.

To ensure your air-conditioning is working in top form, we recommend you have an air-conditioning servicing every two years. Our Audi Trained Technicians will carry out a full drain and recharge of the gas in the system as well as a detailed inspection of hoses and connectors as well as the cooling fan and compressor drive belt.

To prevent your windows from misting up, the air inside your car is purified and dehumidified by your air-conditioning system. However, a build-up of bacteria and other airborne particles can reduce its efficiency, create unpleasant odours and trigger allergies. An ultrasonic treatment is available between services. This disinfects any microbial, fungal and bacterial particles – ensuring that the air in your car is as pure as it should be.

Cambelt change.

To ensure optimum safety and performance, we recommend that your cambelt gets replaced every 5 years or 75,000 miles, whichever comes first*. As one of the hardest working components in an engine, the cambelt is made from a rubber based compound that deteriorates with time. To avoid serious engine damage, it should be replaced in good time.

Factors including mileage, various sources of contamination and time are just a few of the factors that influence the cambelts wear. Therefore it is essential that the cambelt is replaced at recommended intervals. If your vehicle is over three years old, visit our Affordable Servicing Section for more information about our exclusive fixed price maintenance offers.

Brake fluid change.

Brake fluid is hygroscopic, which means it absorbs moisture over time, reducing the temperature at which the fluid boils. This could result in increased stopping distances, reduced braking efficiency and even brake failure.

We will be able to advise you on when your brake fluid should be checked and changed. You can also take advantage of our fixed price brake fluid service at Yeovil Audi.

Transmission fluid change.

To ensure you have a smooth and seamless gear change, your transmission system has been engineered carefully. It is key that your transmission fluid is changed regularly to keep this performance continuous. We recommend that this should be changed according to your service schedule every 40,000 miles.

Transmission fluid acts as both coolant and a lubricant to your transmission system. Everyday wear and tear breaks down the viscosity of transmission fluid making it less effective and potentially causing consequential damage to other components such as the engine.

Audi tyres.

Your Audi's tyres are vital for acceleration, steering and braking, and are key factors in fuel economy and reducing CO2 emissions. Even tyres with the legal minimum tread depth of 1.6mm take longer to stop than brand new ones.

To help maintain your safety, Audi Trained Technicians can check the tread depth, pressure, appearance and condition of your tyre as part of a complementary health check, available at any time. Audi offers a range of premium tyres at competitive prices. Our online tyre quotation service will help you find the right tyres for your Audi at the right price.

General Diagnostic Investigation.

If you have a concern with your Audi our technicians will carry out an initial diagnostic investigation. Our highly trained Audi technicians use our most advanced diagnostic equipment to carry out the initial investigation.

We will then contact you to discuss the next steps which will either be a firm quotation for the repair, or for more complex issues, an estimate for additional diagnosis.
