Mein Auto: 06' X3 3.0i
2006 X3 Transfer case Help

It looks like Christmas time on my dashboard-I have the dreaded three colorful lights of death (ABS,Brake and 4x4) on full time now. Been diagnosed as needing a new transfer case by Indy Mech as well as BMW. Possibility of getting some small goodwill from BMW NA but want to know from you experts out there what is the realistic labor hours required to replace the TC?

Try replacing the fiber gear in the actuator motor assembly first.

I did and mine worked a treat - no more lights and only $98 from the internet.
