Haldex service question

Everyone here has been very helpful in the past and I'm looking for an answer to a silly question.

Is replacing the rear diff fluid the same as changing the haldex fluid? Are they the same thing? Lol I'm super not mechanically inclined but can wrap/dip a car any day.
I took my car in for her dsg and haldex service, usually my husband does all the mechanical work on her but he's in the field w/ no service right now. The paperwork didn't mention anything about cleaning the haldex filter either I know they can get pretty gunky. Side note they also replaced the water pump so I joined that club...

Haldex service question

Looking at their notes, they used haldex fluid (G-060-175-A2) for your differential (and I assume rear differential as there is a front as well) when they should have used gear oil for the differential (G-052-145-S2). Iím sure you are safe temporarily but I would go directly to the service manager to have it refilled with the proper oil. If they say the oils are interchangeable, call VWOA.

The haldex was not serviced based on the service order, and yes, you would ask them to remove the haldex pump and wipe down the filter (albeit for an additional cost).

Good Luck!
