      Who would consider no service a selling point? I certainly don't, and I didn't say that I did. What I said was that I don't need support here. I can install it all by myself. Is support in other...

      While I agree that the yoke is heavier on the MM unit, the Megan one is no less beefy than the OE one under my car that has lasted 125k miles.



      Certainly not custom. Hand-selected, perhaps. ...

      Those are $250. For that price, I would kick in another $10 and buy MM adjustable arms. Eccentric anything is not a great way to adjust alignment. Threads allow you to dial carefully until you are...

      Thanks. What is the reason for going MM ($260) over the Megan Racing ($145?) Megan racing seems to use a rubber joint instead of a Heim, which is to be avoided on a street car. MM uses poly...

      KTHX. Didn't know if upper and lower were actually the same length.

      I wonder if the problem might be solved with bushings only. The tires that came on the car were destroyed in the same way, and...

      Upper and lower are the same, so just buy two pairs?
    7. Exactly my concern regarding toe. If lowering...

      Exactly my concern regarding toe. If lowering induces toe in, maybe the best single-arm solution would be lower, since adjusting the camber more positive from the bottom would also push toe out.

      These?

      When you say all four, do you mean upper and lower for each side? Would lowers (or uppers) alone cause toe problems?

      This is what I was talking about:

      Something different from this? Something in addition to it? This will...
    10. Has anybody used lower adjustable links to correct rear camber issues?

      While working on the TTQ yesterday, I found that the rear camber has demolished the rear tires after only 8k miles.

      Do the adjustable lower links, such as those made by Megan racing, work? Do...

      Looks very nice. Are the welds backpurged?

      Clutches have long been my suspect, but I have always been told that they basically last forever, and that when they do fail, they weld.

      Long absence from this thread, but now I have scanned for codes. Result: NO CODES.

      No codes.
      New pump.
      New filter.
      New fluid.
      Rear wheels spin when lifted car is run in gear.

      Adjust the DPR. It will give you everything a chip could do and more.

      Asiwa,

      Thank you for a thoughtful answer. Yes, I changed fluid and filter with the Haldex pump last summer.

      Your remark about the ability of drag to move the rear wheels without meaningfully...

      I definitely understand the usefulness of a VAGCOM, and will buy one in the long term, but $350 is a substantial share of the cost of fixing the problem. Money is limited right now, so I have to...
    17. Update to Haldex Woes: Winter Sucks Dragging Your Rear End Around

      Winter is here, and I am getting zero help from the rear wheels on my 2002 TTQ 225. Here are the facts:

      1) When I am driving the car, there is no discernible assistance from the rear wheels. On...

      Primary suspect as I see it.

      When the pump died (already replaced,) might it have thrown a code that would prevent the Haldex from working properly once the new pump was installed?
    19. First drive in the snow was atrocious. I have no...

      First drive in the snow was atrocious. I have no discernable help from the rear wheels, BUT the rear wheels spin with the fronts when the car is on the lift in first gear.

      New pump, New fluid,...
