Audi Australia has issued a recall for 2018 and 2019 model-year A3 sedans over concerns the rear centre head restraint may lack a locking pin.

The company reports a processing error during production is behind the issue, which may see the rear centre seat detach from the guide pins in the event of an accident.

If the condition occurs, Audi says there is an increased risk of injury to an occupant in the rear centre seat "as the support and protection functions of the head restraint may not perform as expected".

A total of 753 vehicles are affected by this recall, manufactured between April and June 2018 – the VIN list is available here.

Owners of the recalled sedans will be contacted by Audi Australia, and advised to get in touch with their local dealer to arrange the inspection and repair of their vehicle if required.
