Depends if they took the Haldex pump out and cleaned the mesh filter and changed the replaceable cartridge filter in the Haldex too. Just changing the Haldex fluid isn’t a service.
See https://www.bellengineering.co.uk/service-...ist_widget for the real deal Haldex service.

How did they 'flush' the diff? Landrover - turning owners into mechanics since 1948

Just looked at bill for haldex service and I was charged £44.34 for service kit and £82.4[/u]4 for haldex oil[u]
Seems a bit steep for oil

Haldex oil IS very pricey.

That is about he correct price if bought from LR. Bell sell the correct amount of the correct specification oil for £30 + VAT.

It depends on what you think is expensive.
When I serviced my Haldex and rear diff in October, I spent £75 on fluids and filters, and enjoyed an hour on my back doing the job.
It's not a particularly difficult job, but easily to screw up if the correct process isn't followed.
Would I spent almost £300 having it done, absolutely not. 2009 Rimini Red SE, its getting there.

@Bobupndown, thankie! Thumbs Up

I do buy locally the Volvo haldex equivalent oil and filter and their prices are good compared to LR and others but it's still expensive for ONE litre of flippin' oil! Of course, now with the supply chain shortages, prices have gone up!

That's made by Febi Bilstein, a German company. Do you not have it in Canada? Landrover - turning owners into mechanics since 1948

Available locally, no. Would have to import, which would trigger shipping charges, taxes and duty. I'm sure it's very good stuff!

And me.
Genuine parts in a plain brown box. I'm not a fan of paying for packaging which just gets thrown away. 2009 Rimini Red SE, its getting there.
