    Correct Haldex oil ??

    Hi people,

    Looking for some advice.

    My S3 is due its haldex oil and filter changed. I ordered the oil and collected it today from verve volkswagen.

    The oil is in a litre bottle and has a different part number from the tube listed on the guides on this site.


    The part number of the oil I have is : G 055 175 A2.

    Does anybody know if this oil is suitable ? Would it be less hassle if i exchanged it for the tube that you put in a silicone gun ?

    Any help appreciated

    Cheers

    Colin

    Might not be much help with your ques but if you decide on another avenue..

    My local Audi dealer quoted me 75.92 all in for the Haldex service @ 40 k. Getting it done on Monday to save me the hassle. The tool (T10066) paddy mentions costs the best part of 40 as well.

    Decided just to book it in to the dealer to save any hassle.

    Was told the oil quantity for a haldex oil change is 700ml for anybody thats interested.

    Make sure they do the filter Colin - Audi don't do it unless you ask...

    Different places give different fill volumes, depending on whether the filter's being changed or not. My garage managed to jam in 1 litre...
