I also have a 2004 X5 4.4i. If your is the same as mine it should have the xDrive. After doing some research I found this transfer case is always connected to the rear differential and does not have an open transfer case like I first thought. This means the front differential, front drive shaft or front axles have nothing to do with park. If it will not hold park it has to be some thing behind the transmission back to the rear wheels (trans output shaft splines, transfer case input shaft splines, internal transfer case failure, rear drive shaft, rear differential, or rear axles. It has to be a mechanical hard part failure not an electrical issue. Not holding park is a serious liability issue. If you park on a hill it may roll away and some one may get hurt! SO let them know when it quits working it does not hold in park.
