If your MQB vehicle is equipped with a Haldex final drive, such as the MK7 Golf R or 8V Audi S3, servicing of the filter screen and oil is crucial to prolong the pump lifespan. The recommended service intervals are seemingly too far apart, and customers are finding that their filters can get blocked within half that timeframe. We recommend this service is carried out every 30,000 KM or less depending on your driving style.
Please note that the final drive is filled with both ‘gear oil’ in the differential and ‘Haldex oil’ in the Haldex (clutch) system – We will be addressing the Haldex clutch in this tutorial.
