Slight vibration noise from rear diff


Hi team VASK,

I recently purchased a 2016 Skoda Superb 4WD.

I notice when turning sharp from standstill that there is a slight feeling of very minor vibration or noise coming from the rear of the vehicle.

Anyone know anything about this as an issue? briskoda and a few other forums sound like this is a known issue with the 4WD system across VAG?

Greatly appreciate any thoughts if anyone has an experience or knowledge around this.

Thanks in advance

Typically in this instance, if purchased from a dealer, I would notify them of your concerns.

Personally, I would perform a Haldex and rear diff fluid change. Make sure the Haldex filter is done (VW claims there is no replacement filter) Yet I have 3 new ones at home.
Perform the Haldex calibration and test and advise if it continues.

Thanks for the comment

They replaced the fluids and cleaned the filter from what I was told, it is a lot better however still there on at times.


Do you notice it more on a smooth concrete surface? Such as an underground Carpark? If so, then it's completely normal.
