    This was mentioned recently iirc... its an indication of imminent haldex clutch pack failure due to infrequent oil changes...

    If you haven't had it done then get a haldex oil and filter change pronto...

    The haldex clutch is part of the diff isnt it? So if an oil and filter change dont fix it its new diff time is it?

    Haldex unit is bolted onto the rear diff and can be bought separately but you could try eBay etc if it comes to that

    You can buy the clutch plates as a set from the dealer for about £120! However I personally haven't plucked up the courage to strip it down and replace them yet, a second hand diff was the easier option. Also worth checking that your haldex pump is working, it's bolted to the lower front right corner of the diff, you can activate it in output tests on vagcom, if it buzzes strongly then it's probably good.

    I went to try the output test but my lead won't let me do it. If it is the clutch I would prob get a seccond hand unit and maybe repair the old one. Or even get a goosed one to fix then swap over.
