    Hi, thanks for looking

    I've recently purchased a 51 reg S3 AMK. Always wanted one.
    Anyway, I bought it from a small dealership who, as part of the sale, would change the oil & filter in the Haldex for me as they knew that the rear wheels were skipping on low speed turns. So, I drove the car home and it still skips on turns. Now, i removed my fuse for the system to see if it would reset but it still skips on low speed turns. I've read in places all over the internet that the clutches seize up in the unit if the oil isn't changed regular. Is this definitely the problem seen as the problem stays even with the fuse removed? I have heard the earth strap is common for breaking but I've checked this and its okay.

    Would really appreciate any feedback!
    Cheers.

    Also, if the unit is knackered. Is getting it re-conditioned cheaper than a new one?
