conversion 2wd in 4wd possible?

i own opel antara 2.0 cdti 2015, last year of production.
i like it very much but is only 2wd, i bought it used from a friend.

is possible to convert a 2wd in 4wd with a donor car ?
or is too hard and complicated?

i will try my antara on light off road but i am scared to get stuck, because of only 2 wd. someone know how the 2wd antara perform on offroad

i read old forum posts but they was on the 4wd to 2wd conversion

thanks very much

As far as I'm aware their is an electronic clutch unit in the rear diff. Your car obviously won't have that or probably the electrics to drive it. The connection on the gearbox is different, you will need a transfer box, propshaft and diff, rear drive shafts and hubs.

I would guess its more trouble than its worth and that is if it is even achievable. Unless you actually need 4wd I would stick with 2wd, 2wd reputation is better than 4wd. Richy
