    8P S3 Haldex Oil Change

    Just been told told by a reputable company that the Haldex oil on my S3 does not need changing as it is sealed for life.

    Is that right??? I thought it was due to be changed every 40k miles. My car has just passed 30k and I wanted to get it changed as I like to do these things early.

    My car is a 57 plate with GEN2 Haldex.

    Haldex oil does indeed need changing. Your service schedule will give you further details.

    Yes I thought it was a bit of a strange thing for them to say. I'll make sure I get it changed

    The Haldex coupling needs oil and filter change at set intervals which should be stated in your Service Schedule! If you don't follow the schedule I hope you're friendly with your bank manager. "Sealed for Life" - CRAP!!!!
