Thread: Sticky : how to AWD a mk1 caddy using ‘4Motion Haldex running gear’, for beginners.

  1. #41
    So you know. The Quattro is permanent 4WD.

    Where as the 4Mo/Haldex is FWD, and only becomes 4wd when the front looses traction.

    Aftermarket controllers allow you to lock up the Haldex clutches whenever you wish to do so. I.e, with Slims I presume that when it is dyno'd on a 2WD dyno the haldex is not activated (otherwise it would be off into the scenery)!

    I want basics, either 50/50 or 100% up front.... simples. I’m gonna buy another Haldex, to open up the control side of things and work out how to apply the pump pressure to on or off. Other folk have done it and I think that all I’d have to to do is ask the question, but then I won’t learn.

    Can't wait to see the progress Elroy, enjoying the thread already

    Re Haldex control I think Simon Worker would be a good contact to speak to if you're unsure

    I’ve been bombarded tonight with either pm’s or messages through text/ WhatsApp/ email for prices on bits, I’m not saying anything until items have been removed and thoroughly inspected.

    Thanks

    I would've thought the rear ARB is worth quite a lot as you don't see them up for sale too often

    Just caught up on this thread, it's a great journey of discovery. It seems that the best decisions may not be apparent until after a commitment has been made. It's great to see, but out of my league. You have my best wishes.

    Right, time to start things off. I assembled the 4motion rear end today, to get some datums to work from, as I didn’t have the donor vehicle to hand I had no reference points. The trailing arms flop all over the place and I had to straighten them to get the hubs square and parallel to each other..... it was no easy taskDF1FBE5E-817C-495F-A700-7E8A2D7391BD.jpg
