Appreciate anyone’s help/input concerning the above really..?

Whilst not due, ( PFL 2016) have heard if you’re keeping the car long term. It’s been suggested a rear diff oil change, as there has been some stories of diff failures due to oil going waxy..? So trying a preventative measure.

Is the correct oil the same as S-tronic gearbox oil ....G052 182 A2, and if so how much is required.?

Any advice many thanks...

I've got this part number for 'Axle oil' as it's listed and it comes in 1 litre G052145S2

Hey Sean

Many thanks for your reply, after some further research the part number I wrongly quoted was for the R32..

From what I found, is it case of simply fill up via the higher filler point ,& when the oil level is above this and starts dribbling out. Then that’s it..?? Would 1 bottle be enough..?

Thanks again keep safe..

Hi,

G052145s2 is indeed the rear "Axle Oil" not Haldex.

We can supply that for £29.00 and 1ltr is all that's required.

Thanks
