About Axle Housings

The Audi axle housing is the outer enclosure of the axle shaft. It protects the inner shaft from damage and may contain lubricant. On rear wheel drive the axle housing includes the differential gears in the centre of the axle.

The axle housing may be a bulky cast structure or a mix of cast and steel tube.

If the axle is damaged this can lead to malfunction of the whole axle assembly. The Audi axle housing functions to protect the axle and associated components by shielding them from impact and preventing water, dirt and dust from penetrating these parts. 

The axle housing can suffer from general wear and tear and will need to be replaced if it rusts, cracks or splits. The Audi axle housing is specifically manufactured for the make and model of your vehicle.

Audi trivia

  • 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 RS3 is lighter than you might think. That's because the five-cylinder engine isn’t made from cast-iron but instead from aluminium. That means it only weighs around 26kg!
  • 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 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 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.
