I had my Haldex oil changed yesterday by a gearbox specialist.

2015 model, 40,000 miles and full Skoda main agent service history.

Looks like it needed it!

It is going to get very dirty, all the bits from wear on the clutch pack running in it.

I hope your specialist cleaned or changed the filter and/or screen parts which collect all the wear bits from the clutch pack.

He didn’t change the filter - as there isn’t one. ;-)
No idea about the ‘screen’ parts, but I’m confident he will have done whatever was required.

Yours has a cleanable screen that DOES need taking out to clean when changing the oil or will lead to further problems.

This is the screen that needs cleaning.

Oh really? That’s what Skoda dealers say. Believe them at your peril. See Urrell’s post at #6.

Your gearbox specialist may be an excellent technician with regular transmissions, but is he/she also a Haldex specialist? If it were my car, I’d be going along armed with Bryetian’s info and Urrell’s photo, to check that your car’s Haldex filtration screen has been cleaned.

The Good News ralphy, is that you are taking responsibility for the correct servicing of your car and it’s Haldex system and not relying on anything that Skoda UK might say. Carry on mate!

Here is a link which explains how to replace the filter that does not exist and offers a replacement for sale. They also do the Gen 5

I think that's the best resource on the interweb for Haldex information. The OP's 2015 car will have the Gen V unit so there's just the pump screen to clean or replace.
That site also details the pump motor basic settings procedure, to be done after repair or oil change.

Thanks for all the comments.
I do have complete faith in the specialist I use & that is based on the number of yerars he has been doing his work and my own experiences.

A case in point: a few years ago I had failed to get a Lexus dealership to resolve an issue I had on an auto box, this was after 3 attempts by them during which the had the car for over a week on each occasion. On recommendation, I then took it to the specialist and, lo and behold, 2 hours later it was fixed and remained fine throughout the rest of my ownership.
Interestingly, when I was there on Wed he had 2 newish Land Rovers* on the ramps which had been brought in by the local LR dealer for attention.

Notwithstanding all the above and, for the sake of completeness, I have phoned him regarding the screen and got the confirmation it was dealt with when the oil was changed.

* Edit: neither were haldex-related and he highly rates the V5 fo reliability.

Graeme we don't yet have a Haldex write up in the Yetipedia. If you took pictures you could do a write up, it could be your moment of fame.

Hiya all

Searching the Forum the last responses to Haldex servicing seem to be 2019 or before, so as I have just had mine done bringing back to the top and the importance of keeping the 4-wheel drive system looked after.

My Chariot is a 2009, with no evidence on any of its paperwork of ever having been looked at let alone serviced. Skoda said its a 'sealed-system'.......
I acquired the serial number from the unit (when ramped for MOT) and ran it by Darkside to confirm which type and what service items available.

Anyways, the evidential photo (struggling to upload) validated my decision to ensure system working with winter here.

I had missed this thread previously and just had a bit of a panic.

I changed the oil and cleaned the filter on my Gen V Haldex unit a few months ago. Looking at the link posted by The Hood on servicing the Gen IV unit, it mentions a purging procedure using VCDS on completion. This is what got me going because I hadn’t done this.

Just thought it was worth a mention for anyone doing a routine service on a Gen V unit, that apart from the differences with the filter. The refill procedures are different too and the purging procedure is not required on the Gen V. - phew!

Trilux I'm not doubting you but could you point me to where you found that "The refill procedures are different too and the purging procedure is not required on the Gen V." Thanks

If you are still struggling on posting photos this may help.
