    Haldex problems fixed

    All I can go is off my own experience. I run Michelin pilot sport tyres, had loads of wheel spin then it got to the point it was only the fronts working. Pump changed, no spin at all. Damp cold road, traction control off and it just goes. Honestly complete transformation.

    Haldex problems fixed

    £455 for new oils, flush, diagnostic and pump. Mines started off like that and gradually got worse. I thought it was just down to being stage 1 but the difference is night and day Ha ha ha. Exactly. Error code was logged on ECU but nothing on dash. I bet here is quite a few like that and they will never notice either. Obviously VW doesn’t want you knowing when there’s a problem........

    I’ll just get the full drive train serviced every year. It’s really only oil your paying for and if your upping the power may as well keep the best oils going in regular

    If I’m honest I think mine has been on the way out for a while now. I now get zero wheel spin but previously I have been for the past 2k miles or so

    Just over 19k
  7. Afternoon all Been experiencing quite a bit of wheelspin recently and thought it was down to me being stage 1 as just under 400bhp with just over 400ft/lb is quite a lot for a little car. So last night decided to try a launch. Masses amount of smoke from the front wheels spinning no warning lights on dash. Booked it into to a place call DH automotive in Bonnybridge and he confirmed it was the haldex pump. Great service and really nice guy as well 👍🏻 Fixed the same morning. New pump fitted, haldex flushed and new oil put in. Now drives like a different car. Launched it in the wet, zero wheel spin and according to the P3 gauge 0-60 in 3.2 🙈😂 If anyone is experiencing wheel spin it may be well worth while getting it checked out.

    These are 5x112 (PCD) ET45 offset, 8.0 wheel width and are on 225,40,18 tyres. Car at hasn’t been lowered You can can pretty much get them made in what ever offset you want to eliminate the need for spaces. I ordered them off a place called rimstyle online. Dealt with a lad called Garry. Couldn’t fault them and excellent service Hope that helps

    Additional mods after APR remap

    What’s PNP? I got the exhaust for a good price second hand otherwise I would of just left the standard one on it
  13. Afternoon all Just a quick question really. I currently run a APR stage 1 remap and DSG map with the 600 intake and turbo elbow. Just bought a Milltek cat back non valved/non resonated exhaust. Can this just be put straight on without having to alter the map or do I need to go back into APR? I know I have to get the coding sorted to take the valves out but is there anything else I need to do? Thanks
