If you own a Freelander 2* or an Evoque*, it will have a Haldex all-wheel drive system that allows your vehicle to automatically distribute the power between the front and rear wheels. Unlike a traditional four-wheel drive system, the Haldex system uses an oil pressure-activated clutch coupling system on the rear differential that activates when the ECU requests it. This allows your Land Rover to benefit from the economy of a front-wheel drive system when driving in everyday conditions and will switch to an all-wheel drive system when required.
As opposed to other oils that lubricate, the complex Haldex coupling system uses specific oil that encourages friction between the surface of the multi-plate clutch setup. A filter is fitted that collects the unwanted particle material from the friction between the plates. Overtime the particles build up in the oil and therefore it’s recommended for a Haldex oil and filter change/service to be carried out at 20,000 mile intervals. This will extend the life of the rear differential Haldex Oil Pump and ensure the reliability of the complete unit.
For ease we stock Haldex Service Kits specifically for the Freeland 2* and Evoque* that include 1 litre of Haldex oil and the filter required. If, however you find yourself needing to replace the pump we stock this for the Freelander 2* and the Evoque* too.
