I'm a bit confused by this post, when you say "front diff" are you referring to the transaxle? I went through the service booklet for my 2018 Alltrack and they make no mention of changing the transaxle gear oil. The only service they recommend for the front gear box is the fluid for the locking front diff on the GTI models so equipped. As far as I'm aware the 4Motion wagons DO NOT have the locking front diff, please correct me if I'm wrong. My assumption is the transaxle on the 4Motion car should be treated like any "normal" transaxle, the manufacturer says it's "lifetime" fluid, but a meticulous owner should change it around the 100,000KM mark.

On the rear VW does say to change the Haldex clutch oil, which I plan to do in the next year.
