Package showed up from FCP Euro today....oil change, brake fluid, Haldex service.
This has the correct VW502 00 approval. No reason to use the VW/dealer stuff - just repackaged Mobil oil. You can use any oil with the correct approval, I like LM products and this is an excellent oil that I use in my Golf as well. Finally, I like to use FCP Euro b/c I can return this when done for a refund - 100% lifetime replacement so these are free (and I use Paypal to buy so get 12/year refunds on my return shipping). My video on the subject:liqui moly why not the Volkswagen oil?
So which Quickjack do you have? I am trying to find one I can use for both my 2018 Mustang, and the wife's 2021 Atlas. Call me a domestic jackass, but all these German cars with their plastic make everything look hard to service covers, and I can't even figure out the best lift point. I was going to go with the BL-5000-EXT, but not sure if that is the right model...Did ours last night (actually at 40k, but didn't see a record of what was done at 30k before we bought it, so I did the Haldex again just to be sure). Ended up ordering the Haldex service kit minus the fluid from DAP. Might cross reference the part numbers to see if I can get everything from one spot next time. Their fluid tool is so much nicer than the pumps I have been using all of my life (hand pumps that go in the bottle that you get at all the auto parts stores). Also see why you ordered the plug and not just the washer, the one that FCP lists doesn't fit, and the original can't come off. Will definitely replace it next time.
This gave me a chance to try my Quickjacks on the Atlas. Didn't think it would fit the conventional way (due to the length of the Atlas and distance between lift points), but it just barely did. There are two lock positions, at the low position I had 6.5" clearance below the front wheels, 5.5" below the rear, and 18.5" below the center of the air dam. At high it was 10.5", 9.5" and 23.5" respectively. (Picture is at high lock). Made everything very easy to get to and inspect everything under the car. Not cheap, but if you do your own work, well worth the investment in my opinon.

I got the 7000SLX and the extensions to make it the same length as the EXT. The Atlas is almost 6000 lb, I'm pretty sure. I didn't buy the EXT so that I could use it on smaller cars too. I use it without extensions on my Chevrolet Volt, and I have confirmed that it will fit with a yet to be purchased 911. It was a little more to buy the extensions separately but I have more versatility this way.So which Quickjack do you have?

Not the Haldex. That's the "bevel box" i.e. transfer case up front. I'd talk to them. There is a front bevel box and a rear differential that take the regular gear oil like you have listed. The Haldex unit is a different bit.2018 SEL 4motion. Had the 3 year brake fluid and awd service done today. Advisor even said “haldex” so that made me comfortable. But the receipt says “transfer case service” and lists axle oil g-052-145-s2. What did they do?
