A good guide. I can confirm the filter is secured by 2 torx 10 screws Hope you don’t mind but here’s a couple of pics showing level plug and drain plug from when I done mine.  

I’ll contribute with this pic showing Haldex fill point (2) and drain plug (1) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Thats a great guide 1f44d.pngim shocked at the amount of sludge on the pump filter & in the bottom of the pump housing,your oil looks black as well. I will be doing mine soon once ive got the oil. 


OP: If you don't mind could you tell us the KM/mileage/interval on the Haldex fluid and your driving style, any track days etc. ? That screen looks terrible, however similar to other Haldex pump screen pictures on the 'net.

      I’ve acquired front (26mm) and rear (24mm) Whiteline anti roll bars for my Mk7 Golf R which I intend to use on spirited drives and many track days to come. 
      My intentions are to dial out the understeer and make it more neutral so I can rotate when trail braking on turn in. I will have B16 PSS10s and also 034 MS top mounts (2.4 degrees negative camber). 
      What I don’t want is a loose back end that induces snap oversteer. 
      what settings should I set these to? They have 2 per bar front and rear. 
      I’ve been told to setup wisely as I could destroy the balance that could end badly!

      I recently had the clutch replaced on my VW Golf R 2015,  Xtreme Clutch, I have done just over 1000kms and it has started slipping again.
      The oil indicator light also came on at the same time. There are no visible sign of a leak.
      Are these related?

      Hey guys,
      First of all, I'm new to the forum so apologies if I'm posting in the wrong section or making a topic I shouldn't be.  
      I'm currently looking at getting a used mk7 Golf R and I've found one I'm looking to make an offer on (likely in next week or so) but wanted a little guidance if possible.
      I've looked through all the subsections of this forum and I've read through the used buying guide I found (https://www.vwroc.com/forums/topic/25237-used-mk7-r-buying-guide/) but I'm posting this topic as a I have a specific question I needed help with.
      The car I'm looking at is a 2015 model, around 50k miles on the clock - it's a DSG version which from my research is a sturdy and generally unproblematic transmission but my concern is that the service history on the car doesn't take note of any Haldex or DSG servicing, which I thought it should have had by now at 40k and especially as it's 5 years old.
      I spoke to the main dealer who did two services on the car and they confirmed the transmission & Haldex service didn't take place - one additional service took place at an independent garage but I can't contact them to determine exactly what they did, I suspect they are currently closed due to covid.  To my knowledge, the onboard computer tells you oil change and service intervals without going into specifics so I don't think that will answer my question either.
      My question - is this a car to walk away from? VW have confirmed to me they will do a fixed-price service should I choose to buy it but I'm worried it might be a case of a transmission giving up if it's not been looked after and serviced, especially given the apparent cost of replacing DSG. I will likely take out a 1 year warranty at a minimum if going for the car.  You may well tell me it's not really an issue, I wanted some advice basically as this will be my first (potential) DSG purchase.
      Thanks in advance and hope you're all well and safe.

      Noticed recently that my late 2015 R paint has started to ‘peel’ or clear coat has failed especially around the lower bumper OEM splitter section
      I also noticed a small spot on the upper bumper and roof where there is a transparent circle like the clear coat has lifted.
      Has anyone experienced this? Any tips are appreciated - I can live with the splitter issue as it’s not really visible unless you get close to it but I really do not want it to happen on the main body 😔
