It is a 2006 model, I have got the filter from VW, and oil. When I googled haldex coupling oil and filter change some threads came up with a 24mm off set spanner being required in addition to the items you mentioned. So just want to get it up on ramp with all tools etc to hand to get it done without any snags. Thought it would off been covered on here before but couldn't find any threads.

Well I finally got around to getting and seeing what is under the van. Wow it needs a jet wash Anyway can someone confirm it is the haldex oil filter in the picture? If so looks like I won't need a special tool?, as it is accessible. Can you change the filter without loosing any oil? Oil was previously changed by mechanic.

Hi,

My main dealer says every 20,000 miles/4 years change the oil and filter. But I have had other suggestions it is every 40,000 miles/4 years!!!!!!

Think I will stick to the lower option to be safe!

Well, my dealer sold me a filter for my T5 4motion and I am pretty sure that is it in the picture but just wanted confirmation I had located the right part before removing it.

Here is a picture of the filter, seal etc I got off the dealer, part number 02D 598 574
