My Haldex system were making low drag noises when driving slowly on turns.
( parking ,etc )
I was told it is natural and it is a result of rear/front power differences.
anyway, I decided to replace Haldex filter and oil.
I made an order last week - package hasn't arrived yet.
Now comes the sad story
I was driving real hard on Saturday during a VAG trip.
Right after the trip everything was fine.
On Sunday morning, I started the car and put to reverse.
The Haldex was making a very very loud terrible dragging noise which shakes the whole car.
Especially on turns.
I did not continue driving with Haldex since then.
I pulled out fuse #31 - Haldex is disabled now and noises are gone.
( I did try to enable it again after 24h , but still the same noise )
so basically my questions are:
How bad do you think I'm screwed?
Did anyone ever encountered such problem after a strong driving session ?
Could it be the fact that filter and oil when never replaced (afaik) and now
the Haldex is ruined and will have to be replaced ?
What are the chances for a mechanic to open-up the Haldex coupling and fix it ?!
