X6 E71 / E72 (2008 - 2014)
The BMW X6 luxury crossover went on sale in April 2008 as a 2009 model year. BMW referes to the X6 as a Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) as it combines the attributes of an SUV (high ground clearance, xDrive and all-weather ability) with the stance, styling and roof line shape of a coupe. The E71 X6 was built off the E70 X5 (2007 - 2013) platform at BMW's Spartanburg, SC plant. Total worldwide sales were just over 235,000, sold mostly to the BRIC countries. US total sales was 34,082 vehicles.

Clicking noise

Hearing clicking noise underneath the car after the engine is shutoff. Did a search and talking to friends that it may be with the motor transfer case. It drives fine and no warning lights are on. Plan to take to an independent shop next week to have it looked at. Has anyone had this issue?
It could be with the actuator gear motor or something more severe. about 42K on the odometer.

The Transfer Case is not doing anything at all when the motor is off. My $0.02 says "exhaust cooling off and making clicking sound as the metal parts contraction."

Now, if your sound is rhythmic, start by reading the codes and go from there.
