Volkswagen has announced a recall for vehicles with potentially defective equipment.

The automaker is recalling certain model year 2007-2009 Audi A8 and S8 vehicles. The sunroof glass on the affected vehicles may not be properly secured to the sunroof frame. As a result, the sunroof glass may detach from the car while driving.

If the glass detaches from the sunroof frame it could become a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash.

Volkswagen is including about 535 vehicles in its recall.

The manufacturer will notify owners, and dealers will install additional adhesive between the sunroof glass and frame, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in July 2016.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Audi customer service at (800) 253-2834.
