This can result in an unintended rapid closing of the rear lid with a risk of personal injury.

Structure — Body — Trunk Lid

Summary
On certain passenger and sport utility vehicles, the automatic rear lid includes an electric motor and clutch that work in conjunction with two gas struts to open and close the rear lid, including a manual close function. If one of the struts has a total loss of pressure, the resultant slow movement of the rear lid is interpreted by the software as an intended manual close and the motor clutch releases to close the rear lid immediately.
Actions
Dealers will install new software free of charge. The recall began on September 14, 2007. Owners may contact Audi at 1-800-822-2834.
