    Hi guys. Had a few issues with a tqs I bought. The 4wd wasn't working so they agreed to fix it under the warranty I got. So I took it to my local garage to get it repaired and found out the haldex ecu wasn't connected. They reconnected it but as soon as the rear wheels start spinning it pours oil out from this location. Anyone have any ideas what could fix it? Cheers

    Turned out whoever had been messing around with it before put the gasket on wrong for the haldex. New gasket fitted the right way around and it's all sorted now

    Due to the position of the controller and the lack of decent access to it, it can be quite easy to get it the wrong way. An elastic band around the gasket (holding it to the controller) helps. Once you have it in place and a couple of turns on the bolts, simply snip it off and pull it out.
