I agree it looks straightforward to do the fluid change. I'll send a sample to Blackstone. Thanks for all your efforts to document folks experiences with their transfer cases.

Rob - snug. Someone found 17nm or 13 ft lb in their manual - which is just snug. These are tapered plugs - if you over-tighten them you stand a chance of cracking the case.

Be very interested in what Blackstone has to say..

My CD is approaching 30K miles, no symptoms.
Your CD TC failed or just doing preventative? I thought CD TCs are different than V8, TT , GTS and V6 TCs.

My CD transfer case seems to be fine. I just wanted to change the oil in it to see what state it is in.

Default Using Durametric Pro to read transfer case V40

Are there any tricks to getting the Durametric to display the transfer case value V40? I updated the software to 6.5.3.6 but under the all wheel drive menu it says communications error. Tried the car "on" and with car running, no joy. I can read out other items not from the AWD menu like engine management, etc. Any tips would be appreciated.

Thanks

I was in a parking lot the other day and heard a slight ticking under acceleration. Must be my transfer case crying.

Question: Would changing my fluid out this weekend solve the clicking or am I too late?

Question that I hope hasn't been answered already. I'm looking at 2013 that is just out of warranty and is not CPO. Soooo, I may be taking a risk with it (but of course the purchase price reflects such)...but is there a way for the PPI inspection shop to test the transfer case at the shop?

The case seems to be the largest unknown with used 958.1s...so I want to be sure I check that aspect. At the very least, I'll change out the fluid.

That and get all four wheels off the ground on a lift and manually turn one. If you hear TC case clicking then it'll need replacing.

As for clicking/sluggishness under power, disconnect the wiring connector into the TC and if the noise stops then it's due for TC replacement. Obviously you should not continue driving with it disconnected.

Nevermind...just saw this back on an earlier page.

Please keep in mind that this issue is not isolated to the 958.1 gen, it effects all 958s to include 958.2s as well. The only 958s exempt from the issue appear to be the diesel and hybrid models due to a different TC used for those models (because their PTM systems are different).

What kind of a torque wrench could be used to torque the fill plug and would fit in the area of the fill plug? I'm not sure how tight is "snug" and am afraid of over-tightening.

I have a 2016 Cayenne S eHybrid and plan to change the TC fluid at 20Kmi with whatever OEM fluid part number the stealership sells (since I don't know whether the hybrid TC takes the same fluid as the non-hybrid TCs). I will also send the oil to blackstone for analysis.

Don mentioned someone found a torque spec of 13 ft/lbs which most larger torque wrenches probably can't do accurately. The other choice would be to go to an inch pound torque wrench. 13 ft/lbs is 156 inch/pounds. Over tightening can crack the case.

Today I had the transfer case fluid changed in my 2015 Cayenne Diesel to ward off evil spirits. The fluid had 30K miles on it and was a bit darker than the new fluid. I supplied the latest fluid ( P/N 000 043 305 63 ) to the dealer since they didn't have it in stock. The value of V40 was 11070 whatever that means. My car is equipped with a transfer case bearing P/N 958 341 020 03 which is believed to be unique to the diesel and hybrid Cayennes. The tech told me they have not had to replace transfer cases on the diesels and the hybrids. The transfer cases on gas powered cars were not as well behaved..... It had no vent line installed. I will send off the sample to Blackstone and post the results when they are available.

If you get a TC replacement at a P dealer now, they install the new vent kit. Was just done to mine.

Understood. My dealer wanted $500 to put the vent kit in, suggesting I wait for failure of the TC and it would come along for the ride free.

The tech told me the first fluid that came out was darker than the remainder of the fluid. It was likely the dirt collected at the bottom of the TC.

For the next time my transfer case fluid needs to be changed I picked up a set of Gear Wrench 81160 stubby hex metric bits for 1/4 inch drive:
