S3 8L Haldex Issues - Driving like a solid rear diff!
Hi Guys looking for some advice.
Basically bought an 2003 S3 8L, first thing I noticed was it was able to spin the front wheels, leading me to believe theres a haldex issue.
Checked No31 fuse - Perfect
Checked Earth Strap on diff - Broken - Now fixed
Check wiring - the small stuff cable that goes in 90 degree bends I believe plugs into the haldex pump was disconnected - I connected
Now the car drives like it has a fully locked rear LSD, no more wheel spinning but it scrabbles stones etc when doing 3 point turns, or on full lock driving slowly. Obviously the rear diff shouldnt do this.
Got the car VAGCOM read and showed an intermitent fault with Haldex but not the controller.
Where do I go from here? I have ordered new haldex oil and filter in the hope that its dirty oil causing the clutch plates to bind?
Any help much appreciated.
