Hmmm, he might get in trouble with his employer if he admitted to a serious problem :-)

Does the Cayenne and Macan share the same transfer case? Perhaps it varies based on engine torque? I wonder if a Panny AWD might use the same unit? Might it be Audi sourced?

Exactly. What's a tiny bit concerning is that I've seen 1 or 2 (???) members report this for their '17's?? Correct me if I'm wrong but if this is the case I too would be curious to know what exactly the "fix" was for those who've had replacements installed over the past 3 model years (other than the fact they put in a new transfer case of course). Something internal has got to be failing in them (occasionally) but you'd think Porsche (or the supplier of the transfer cases) would have figured out what exactly it was and engineered a fix. Interesting.
