      They move based on speed and steering angle. Drive slow, around 15-25mph, and turn right/left like a S-turn and you will see them move. I barely notice them taking 90-degree turns or at high speeds....

      Mine was leaking around 25k if I recall. The dealer pulled it apart and replaced various internal seals as well. I can dig up the service record to see if there is anymore information on it. It's...

      I ordered a set of A/S 3 that I can hopefully get mounted this weekend or next. If you can manage pure summer tires then I wouldn't even question it and just get PSS. They are so highly regarded you...

      Yes, It is *supposed to be included. I read of cases where dealers didn't include it with the 30k service. I also read of reports of dealers draining diff/filling haldex and causing locked up rear...

      Okay, I did a ton of reading and it doesn't sound like this fluid change should be any different then a standard diff/trans change. I experimented with estimating how much fluid leaked out and...
    8. URGENT - Did I mess up a Haldex fluid change?!

      So I feel like an idiot. I have done plenty of fluid changes in my life, but never for Haldex. I have the correct drain/fill bolts removed via the info thread on here. Here is my issue.

      Have fun at HPR everyone. I wish I could make it. I've been out there a fair amount. The R does decent. If your brakes are stock you will probably start getting pad deposits later in the day if the...

      My rattle, which took forever to find, is the passenger seat belt receptacle. I finally noticed that it never showed up when someone else was in the car which pin pointed me to it. It always sounded...

      Update. The dealer got approval to replace the entire transfer case under warranty. Basically, they said it had some internal seals that are leaking. Apparently it's easier to replace then rebuild. I...
