The Insignia VXR Haldex unit is not without its problems, a combination of poor maintenance, poor driving style or just sheer bad luck means these are a common failure on even younger cars and the only dealer response to issues is to replace the unit at a whopping cost of nearly £5k.
The most common sign your haldex unit is on its way out is juddering/grinding whilst maneuvering/parking.
The Haldex unit is essentially a wet clutch mechanism with an oil pump, as such and as with all clutch type mechanisms they are prone to wear and use which leads to unit failure as well as leaks from seals and power failure (the unit has its own ECU) the good news is that all of these issues can be fixed for a fraction of the cost of a replacement unit.
