    I reckon the gen 4 on Audi's and such like is different to the GM set up , from what ive found , our cars filter is buried behind a large cover where as on the VAG cars its a simple cap with 2 bolts in it to get at the filter but I also gather that Saab develop the 4WD for our cars and were notorious for over engineering things

    Hmmm - confused! Both the youtube links (the Gen IV and Gen V on Volvos) have the pump aligned parallel with the drive shaft, pointing towards the engine. On mine, the pump is perpendicular to the drive shaft, pointing to the left rear wheel, sitting under the control module (as per earlier picture). Have looked at lots of picture of Haldex units on google and youtube and haven't seen one like mine. So still not 100% sure which generation I have.

    From a part number perspective, yes, looks like a Gen IV.

    The coupling on these cars is a type of Gen IV Unit that was made by Haldex for GM to go into some Saabs as the "XWD" system, plus the Insignia VXR.
    If you google "Saab XWD" you will see a unit that looks exactly like this one.

    Facelift cars had a tweaked version, but nothing I have seen on an Insignia VXR looks anything like a GenV - they are quite different.

    Who said insignia vxr got upgraded to Gen 5 anyway.

    Don think there's been any evidence of the switch even for facelift.

    Looking an online shop for borg Warner parts (which owns Haldex)

    Under Opel parts there's no mention of Gen 5 parts at all, only Gen 4...

    People keep saying it, but it’s wrong.
    There has never been anything resembling a GenV Haldex in the Insignia.

    I believe it came from the original press releases for the 2014 face-lift model
