Error codes help

Hi guys
I have a 2008 X3 M Sport 2.0D. I recently took the car on a long run (approx. 8hrs) and got the "terrible triad" of lights (ABS, 4x4, and Brake).

When I connected and scanned using DIS V57 I got the following:

DSC - 5F3A DSC: Transfer case: Malfunction
DSC - 5F39 DSC: Transfer case: Internal
AWD control B3450_8P_VTG
DSC Supply B3450_E60VERS

MRS5K - A1 MRS: No message from DSC control unit or message incorrect
MRS5K - A3 MRS: No message from DSC control unit or message incorrect
Airbag supply B6510_30018

IHKA - 20 IHKA: AUC heating - - - - Short circuit to negative
AUC sensor B6450_00107

VTG - 54C6 VTG: Oil wear - value too high
Transmission oil B2710_VGOEL

DDE - 40A4 DDE: Exhaust-gas recirculation controller, position, long-term drift
Exhaust-gas recirculation controller B1365_D7AGR

DDE - 4B1C DDE: Fuel-filter heating, activation - open circuit
Fuel-filter heating B1365_D7KSH

DDE - 4A6E DDE: Glow plug, cylinder 1, activation - open circuit
Heating control B1365_D7GSG

LEW - 04LWS: Slider fault (adjustment operations )
Slider fault (adjustment operations ) B3714_00004

VTG - 54C4 VTG: Calibration faulty - mechanical fault
mechanism B2710_VGMECH
Repair B2710_VGREP

DSC - 6E3E DSC: Steering-angle -sensor adjustment required
steering - angle signal B3450_8PE83LEWI_NEU
Adjustment, steering_angle sensor B3450_E83ABGL


Do I need to replace the transfer case actuator gear or transmission fluid. also, do I need to replace the steering angle sensors.
What about the other errors ?

Any help will be appreciated

How many miles?
Do you have a clicking sound from underneath? I would start checking/replacing/rotating the gear in the actuator, then reset the codes and go from there, see here:

It looks like you have other codes unrelated to the terrible triad.
It also looks like the steering angle sensor needs calibration, but check the mechanical side first, then see if the what codes come back.

It has a little over 150,000 miles.

I don't hear the clicking sound, but still thinking it is related to the actuator gear. I will look into ordering 1 and changing it.
Found this online:

I had the triad about 1 year ago and took it to a mechanic (there's no dealers in Guyana, just mechanics) and he wanted to change the actuator, but the lights came off, so I didn't bother with it then, but now its back and the car has issues since.
Whenever I lock the steering all the way to the left to make a turn at a stop, there is a "knocking" sound from the left side as I start to accelerate. Also, sometimes when accelerating from a stop, you can feel a jerking motion (forward and backwards)
