    Although it is probably a good idea, the gen 2 haldex is a sealed for life unit meaning the manufacturer says it doesn't require any maintenance.

    In answer to your question, I'm not sure what grade it is but it's not much from Audi, I would do the filter too.

    Only costs around £60-70 from Audi to have your haldex serviced

    Had mine done recently. Had other stuff done too so cant remember cost of just haldex service. Although the local indy who done it didnt change the filter as my haldex is a sealed unit.
