    Changing haldex oil and filter

    Hi,
    I am thinking about having a go at changing the haldex oil and filter myself.
    Firstly is it an 'easy' job?
    Also will i just need 1x filter, 1xtube of oil and the removal tool?
    Any advice would be apreciated.

    I do yeah, but you could do it on your back if you wanted. Get the car as high up as possible and I don't see why you couldn't.

    i did mine on a set of ramps, you can get a tool for 10 quid off ebay to get the filter off. I posted something about this a while back when i did mine
