Thank you. I just wanted to point out that I didn't change the filter because it was changed in 2017 and the car has very little milage since then, I'll do it next time. Our cars (mk4 and mk5) do have a filter in the haldex unit (thank god I would say).
About Golf R mk6 (2008 - 2012), it also has a haldex filter. The problem is that in VW's computer system it doesn't really exist. It is listed as “fitted for life, non service item”. Because of that it is never changed on service, when it in act should be changed every 40 000 miles like on our cars. It is situated right above the haldex pump, and you can buy it from a few specialists. There is a common problem with the gen 4 haldex to get clogged up. And changing the filter will surely prevent that.
Well. Shit then haha you are right. I was changing haldex oil at VW workshop one month ago and the mechanic said that this haldex doesn't have an oil filter anymore. I didn't even check rear haldex unit myself tbh, but according to both ETKA and Elsa, mk5 haldex does have an oil filter. Guess imma change it at next interval aswell.
As I see from diagrams, it is much easier accesible than on mk4 golf's.
MK5 haldex oil filter OEM no.: 02D 598 574
Okay I researched this even further. VW employes themselve said their is no filter nor they ever changed one on any haldex system. They don't even have one in stock as the biggest VW dealer in our country 😂 This drives me crazy.
I lifted the car and well. There is a filter, well hiden and the cover doesn't look like a filter cap at all! You were right Andre!
