Hi all my 958 cayenne has developed the transfer box issue with jerky gear change etc. Car is 2015 with 42k. Full porsche history but out of warranty unfortunately. Haven't contacted porsche but can't see them contributing to repair! ??

Anyways anyone know any reputable independents who can carry out this job?

Thanks

Before you panic, try a transfer case fluid change using Ravenol TF-0870 x 2 litres.

It's a very straight forward DIY and there is a very good 'How To' over on the Rennlist Forum. Just don't overtighten the filler and drainage plugs!

My 958 was displaying these symptoms and a change of fluid with Ravenol completely cured the problem!

At that age and mileage the Consumer Rights Act 2015 might help.

Can i just say after reading the pm,s .. get a fault code check done .. lets see if there are any codes stored in the dme .. misfire for example .

Transfer box kinda gives a lack of power .. poor gear changes .. in extremes it will jam and you wont be moving .

Usual check .. disconnect the dam thing and drive it .. is it different ?
