    S3 rear haldex / diff leaking oil

    Fitted my H&R springs today and they transform the look of the car.

    When I was down in the pit fitting the springs I had a good look around the exhaust to make sure i didnt have any more problems with the Milltek and a general look around the car.

    I found traces of oil on the underside of the haldex unit, the cross member to the rear of the car is also covered in oil. I will be calling audi first thing in the morning.

    Couple of pics, you can see the one of the cross member where i ran my finger through the oil.





    I will keep you all updated

    I replaced by 235's with 225's a few weeks ago, and got a good deal on some Continentals - was about 570 for 4 IIRC.

    I found the 235's rubbed a bit after I put coilovers on, so was happy to spend a little more for the clearance the 225's give.

    Stretch = clearance, Clearance = You can go lower, Going lower = Looks better, Looking better = win

    Yeh i had this problem and Audi put a new diff seal in. 3 months later looked under the car and more oil.

    My dealer now has a second seal on order. Hopefully they fix it properly this time.
