Hi Guys, called a few Audi garages today in Dublin lookin for Haldex oil for myself and my mates TT. Was told the oil is no longer supplied in tubs that be fitted in a chalking gun! Instead they are being supplied in 3 litre bottles. Anyone else come across this? If this is the case how do I get it up into the sump?! Was also told I'd need 2.5 litres for my 225...I've always put just 275ml into it..
Any comments appreciated..

From memory those tubs came in 275ml? So how many of these were you putting in for a oil change?

Hello again, I'm a bit confused. People are saying to use 3 litres of Hadlex oil in a change but in all the online guides they seem to be using only 1 tub of the oil in a chalking gun (which is normally 275ml)...Can anyone clarify?
Thanks in advance..

Cool.. Glad to hear in some ways! So am I right in saying one tub of 275ml will be enough for the Haldex change?

1 tube is enough. Gun is not needed, it´s thin oil just push it in with something suitable.

Anyone know how to get the filter out without buying the special tool. There must be a way :wink:
I think you can do it with pipe pliers but its fiddly.

Best bet is to grab one of the tools off ebay, then flog it for £2 less on ebay again after use if you are not gonna keep the TT for 20k miles.... :D
