Following up that ECS never answered, and I imagine they still have the wrong drain plug listed.
In any case I image one could re-use the plug, or search for the aluminum washer only.
Not sure many people are aware the fluid has to be drained every 3 years regardless of mileage-
It wasn’t too bad-the drain plug is very long, it wasn’t stuck in there but I’d did take forever (laughs)
I waited for it do drip without removing the fill, and when that came off it gushed out pretty good.
The screen was t too dirty, but with a white paper towel I cleaned it and could see it...
Yep, I also watched that one-but nowhere in the Volvo video did he remove a drain plug-so I guess he forgot to, or on the Volvo Haldex draining is accomplished by removing the pump :stupid:
The VW vortex DIY seems most relevant, and as mentioned, the same drain plug for the Audi Gen5 Haldex...
Ecs does have the drain plug, but it's listed as compatible with the Golf R. For Audi, they incorrectly sell the drain for the Differential.
And so I assume after all this searching that I was sent the drain plug for differential, not the correct one for Haldex, which should be part number N91082701-I will now contact ecs and let them know my findings. Also, searching for A3/S3 Haldex drain plug from online parts is very sketchy, it...
This youtube video is for the older Generation Haldex, but from all the searching I've done, it's the same drain and fill procedure, but Gen 5 has no filter to be replaced, and you must remove pump and clean the built in screen/filter on the pump itself-
The drain plug is indeed what we should...
I got the oem oil-it's made in Sweden btw
I'll contact ecstasy and point it out. Aside from the S3, the A3 Quattro is also listed with using the same 2 plugs for drain and fill, which is apparently wrong. According to the VW service manual, drain is part N91082701. I can't find the A3/S3 Haled...
From a 2015 VW service manual I found:
On vehicles equipped with a Haldex clutch, the drain and sealing
screws of both systems get interchanged due to the integrated
housing. This results in avoidable mistakes in maintenance
and servicing, which can result in the Haldex clutch or
I got the oil and plugs from ecs, but before setting out to do the oil change I did an extensive search and still can't confirm 100% which one is the drain plug. Because ecs sold me the identical plugs(drain and fill part N90281802) -
But when I went under the car to see what it's...
