Common Audi A3 Electric Power Steering (EPS) Problems
There are various ways in which the Audi A3 EPS system can fail and below are some of the common faults we’ve seen recently with this type of unit, all of which we have been able to successfully repair.

  • Intermittent Loss of Power Steering
  • Complete Loss of Power Steering
  • Red Power Steering Warning Light On
  • One-Sided Heavy Steering

If the electric power steering on your Audi A3 has failed then you will most likely be advised to have it replaced with a very expensive new part which comes with a 12 month limited warranty. The part is only available from main dealers and will require coding at an additional cost. The initial purchasing cost of a second-hand used part is relatively cheaper but this will also require programming at an additional cost and with the units being such common failures, you could end up back where you started with steering faults all over again. Second hand parts come with a limited 30 – 90 day warranty.
