GM Everyone,

I have a question has anyone successfully upgraded there rear end with a newer model rear end? I have a 2013 tiguan and I have a 2016 tiguan rear differential that I would like to use on my 2013. Is this possible? The difference I see right of the bat is the Haldex unit is different and there are extra wires in the connector that I have no idea what it is for or where it goes to.

Why am I doing this because of a bearing noise problem on the drivers side axle / diff side.

Does anyone have a electrical schematic for a 2016 tiguan Haldex? I'm also wondering if I'll have to do coding with that as well.

Any suggestion would be great.

Thank again

Has anyone torn apart one? Just curious if I can swap the internals to my old one.

I just need to get past the sealer that's on there so I figured I try and heat it up some how and then pry it apart.

Thanks
