Locating ADAS Information: Audi

As a collision repair technician, there is one part of a service manual that houses all of the information you would ever need…right? This is not the case with modern vehicles. You may be required to look in numerous manuals to find the information required to safely repair the vehicle.

The Repairability Technical Support (RTS) portal has videos posted to show you how to navigate specific OEM body repair manuals (BRMs), but this sometimes just gets you in the door. If you are looking for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) information in the BRM, you may not find any information at all. ADAS information is not normally located in the body repair manual. You may have to go into the service manual to find ADAS or a separate manual altogether. Luckily, the RTS team has already navigated most of the OEM repair manuals and we’ve found the ADAS information. Let's see where to find ADAS information from Audi.

Audi does not house their ADAS information in the body repair manual. After accessing your subscription, there will be two pages of documents that show up in the search results. The document titles will show up in rows. When you find the document that you are searching for, to the right of the title you will see two square icons stacked on top of each other next to the letters, "PDF." By clicking the bottom square, you will access the document.

ADAS information is primarily located in three manuals. In the "Suspension, Wheels, Steering" manual, you can find calibration procedures for the adaptive cruise control radar, the forward-facing camera, and the infrared night vision camera, if equipped. All calibration information for the 360° camera is found in the "Communication" manual, and the ultrasonic park assist sensors and blind spot monitoring sensors are found under: Electrical Equipment.

This is also where most ADAS component R&I procedures and calibration procedures are found.

Some calibration events are found in these categories. You may also have to look in the R&I procedure for the body part that the ADAS component is attached to.

Audi has simplified and streamlined their repair manuals for many models. Starting with 2019, they are including the "Audi Driver Assistance Systems" manual specifically for ADAS.
