    I'm guessing you guys have tried replacing the Diff oil and have also tried changing the Haldex oil and filter to see if the whining goes?

    haldex oil change has been done no change. I think its to late to be changing oil at this point i ve suffered for 6 months fed up with it, just need to source a good condition used unit.

    question whats the difference between the haldex & diff i thought its all the same part ?

    Check this out Matt:

    On Page 4 you can see that the haldex unit sits infront of the rear diff. The haldex unit operates a clutch system that delivers power when nessecary to the rear axel but both the rear diff and haldex have oil in and are seperate.

    i would be surprised if its the Haldex unit, more likely the diff, does my head in. Clueless what needs replacing how hard it is to fit.
