    Question Haldex question ?

    Is the Haldex service based only on mileage (20K) or is it 2 years max also, the same as brake fluid? Just wondered as engine oil is based on a time and mileage schedule so i'm thinking the Haldex oil is the same ?

    I'm asking incase the requirement has changed since the service book for my car was printed as seem to recall people mentioning it has changed ?

    cheers in advance.

    Cheers, the main reason for not searching is to get up to date info as some of the search results are a bit long in the tooth. Will have a look tho.

    40K blimey, seem to recall the previous A3 8L was 20k oil 40k filter IIRC.

    cheers
