Car is RS3 2011 8P (66K MILEAGE)
Just had her in for a Haldex oil change at a local independent garage (well recommended because run by an ex BMW Tech). Had a phone call to say there is an oil leak from the diff unit (not Haldex) which looks to be coming from one of the shafts. There is also some play in this shaft (although there is no obvious noise or lack of performance).
They have suggested it may be the bearing and that they are not willing to service or strip down to investigate neither will anyone else do this these days, they advised complete renewal with a reconditioned diff would be the better option.
I have tried to search for one but only seeing used ones around with varying mileage on them.
Any help much appreciated please!
