RAVENOL AWD-H Haldex Fluid is a special high-performance product engineered for use in Haldex's Allrad, Quattro and 4motion powertrains and is specially engineered for use with all-wheel drive powertrains with Haldex couplings, such as those in in Audi, Volkswagen, Seat, Skoda, Vauxhall, Land Rover and Volvo vehicles.
The lower the dynamic viscosity, the better. The Haldex clutch will begin to work faster, the oil will circulate more quickly and there is no wear caused by a low temperature start. With regard to the parameters for dynamic viscosity at minus 40 °C, RAVENOL AWD-H Fluid delivers 270,63% higher performance than the original oil VW G 060 175 A2
How the Hadlex Coupling operates:
The Haldex Coupling is a very sophisticated piece of engineering and it needs to be looked after with regular Haldex oil changes. The axle closest to the engine is constantly powered. All-wheel drive powertrains with a Haldex coupling automatically direct engine power to the other axle where required, without any intervention from the driver. The Haldex coupling, a separate component to the rear final drive, but directly attached to it, is a submerged, multi-plate, wet clutch system that engages upon slip and transfers power to the rear final drive. The system is computer controlled with very fine engineering tolerances. If the Haldex oil is dirty, it can damage other components and affect performance. Dirty Haldex oil can overheat the coupling or cause the clutches to burn out. It can also burn out the Haldex Pump and will lead to loss of rear drive and eventual failure. You can learn more about the Haldex AWD system and how it works on our blog. Here is also a very interesting feature by one of our customers: Eco-Torque Ltd.
RAVENOL AWD-H Haldex Fluid is suitable for use with all-wheel drive powertrains with Haldex couplings, such as those in Audi, Volkswagen, Seat, Skoda, Vauxhall/ Opel, Land Rover and Volvo vehicles. The Haldex oil should be changed every 37,500 miles in order to avoid damage to the powertrain. Further information and a list of vehicle applications can be found HERE. Please be aware that as the opening on the coupling may be different sizes on different vehicles, you may need to trim the nozzle down in order to get a tight fit when using the 300ml size.
