About Axle Assemblys
The Audi axle assembly is used in front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive vehicles. It connects on one side to the transmission and to the wheels via the CV joint. Its job is to transfer torque from the transmission to the wheels and connects the two front wheels of the vehicle, allowing them to move and rotate freely. Sometimes the Audi axle assembly also allows the wheels to move independently of each other. As a bare minimum a basic Audi axle assembly will comprise of an axle, axle housing and bearings. Some however, are more complex and include the suspension and steering systems.
Damage to the Audi axle assembly tends to be more common in off-road vehicles and may be indicated by a grinding noise when changing gears. It’s also worth noting that the Audi axle assembly can be damaged if its connecting CV joint is worn. To keep the joint in good condition, it’s important to ensure that the protective rubber CV boot isn’t damaged. This contains grease which lubricates the CV joint. If it becomes damaged, this grease can become contaminated with grit and cause friction to the joint.
- Audi was the first manufacturer to use four-wheel drive cars in the World Rally Championship. Consistent wins meant that the WRC soon allowed all cars to use the technology.
- The classic Audi ‘four-ring’ logo is instantly recognisable and is meant to symbolise the four companies that make up the main trading arms of Audi.
- The Audi Type K was the first car with left-hand steering as standard. This was one of Audi’s most popular cars, especially in Germany.
- The Audi R8 is made very unusually, and only 20 are rolled out of their factory on any given day. That’s because it's considered an honour to work on this model, and only the top 120 Audi employees are qualified enough.
- The Olympics Committee tried to sue Audi in 1995, claiming that the four rings logo was too similar to the Olympic rings. Audi easily won.
