    Whilst replacing the Haldex pump the garage noticed that the donut (rear prop shaft vibration damper coupling) is starting to fall apart. Are there any uprated options for these or will i have to bite the bullet and fit a stock replacement (not cheap)?

    I haven’t seen any upgrade parts but it possible that the standard ones are ok.

    yes otherwise it could end up making a right mess if it fails.

    Any idea how easy this is to fit, and best place get one.... Mines got a couple of splits, but nothing serious yet.

    The local garage did the work but I dont recall it being much of a bill so relatively straight forward. As above I bought one of ebay, FEBI brand who I think supply a lot of OEM parts anyway.
