NOW WITH PICTURES!!
I heard all this horrible grinding under the car today so I'm almost certain it's the transfer case. For the last few weeks, I would get intermittent flashes from the DSC light under acceleration but once I let of the gas, it would stop. Last night I thought I heard a clicking sound under the car, but I was in traffic so I thought it was another car. Now I know it was me
I'm clearing out the garage to make room for the project. I've searched through countless threads but I haven't encountered a DIY for the transfer case removal/replacement. I wonder if anyone has some tips on sequence and tools. I was not getting the triad of warning lights people have often reported about and I highly doubt it is the servo motor...or at that isn't all of the problem I heard.
I'm quite good mechanically but I have to add some torx bits to be able to do all things bimmer but any other tips are greatly appreciated. Thanks!
