I know but the person on the FL2 Facebook group was adamant they had nothing to do with Haldex any more ??? Difficult to believe

Like you I find it hard to believe given the number of manufacturers that use Haldex. That was a screenshot of their homepage this afternoon. I don’t do social media or the like so wouldn’t know.

They put a new haldex pump on my car a few months ago.

I suppose it depends on what is meant by "don’t do anything to do with Haldex any more". eg reconditioning/rebuilding as opposed to simple servicing, maybe Jules

A bit more of a look at their website shows that they still offer reconditioned units up to Haldex 4. Above that it’s new units.

It’s a guy who has his own 4x4 garage in Malvern who says they don’t do anything with Haldex any more - drumming up his own business perhaps ?

I found the conversation and he said that they have stopped dealing with Haldex altogether. This guy said he enquired with Bell about a week ago. I wonder if it’s because he’s competition

To put this rumour to death.

I have just rung Bell. The rumour is FALSE. They are open to all work on haldex units. They just do not sell new units.

As always give Austen a ring on 01299 266503 Jules
