    I noticed collar level drop on m Q7 with 53000mls.

    Got Audi Dealer to diagnose the issue while the car was in service.

    I have RAC warranty, but they rejected the claim because Audi sent them the service Bulletin, which states that this is an gradual failure of the shut off valve and not an Sudden failure.

    So on that basis, my Warranty claim got rejected, my warranty apparently cover everything on car which fail suddenly!! Typical warranty response!!!

    Now I will have to pay for it myself, but will get it done at a specialist rather than Audi ********!!

    I’m going to send Audi UK email asking for contribution towards repair…probably won’t get any but worth a try.

    Any suggestions, how to handle Audi UK?

    Nearly all aftermarket warranties are useless as they are "mechanical breakdown" and specifically preclude "wear and tear" so read the small print. RAC warranties used to be the best but they offloaded the division to a third party and now they play the same dirty tricks as the rest of them, it is a market place that really could do with some tighter legislation as it is a party place for those of a nefarious mind.
