About Cross Members
The Audi cross member is a structural part of the car body which holds the engine and/or transmission in place.
The Audi cross member is more often than not made of steel, and usually contained within a box that is bolted across the underside of the car, to the bottom of the chassis.
The Audi cross member forms part of the bodywork of the car and therefore is built to be strong and solid and able to withstand the weight of the engine and/or transmission. Being a structural part, the Audi cross member assists with the overall handling of the car and helps to keep the body panels solidly in place and in the correct position.
It is vital that the Audi cross member is in sound condition and working properly as it is paramount to the structural safety of the car. Prone to rust caused by water from the road and damaged caused by debris from the road, over time the Audi cross member will eventually need replacing. If damaged the Audi cross member will need replacing with one that is compatible with the make and model of your vehicle.
- Audi was founded after the German engineer August Horch fell out with the co-founder of his first manufacturing company. He called the new company August Horch Automobilwerke GmbH, which doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue.
- Audi has been responsible for many firsts in car design. One of the most impactful was the introduction of the dual-clutch gearbox, first seen in the Quattro S1 E2. Now, of course, they are commonplace.
- The word Audi is a Latin translation of the word Horch, which incidentally is where we get the word audio from!
- Volkswagen owns the Audi brand, after buying it from Daimler-Benz way back in the 1960s.
- Not happy with just making one of the first automated cars, Audi even built and raced one in the Pikes Peak Hill race, setting records for speed even without a driver.
