Unhappy Replaced Macan Transfer Cases

The following is a list of replaced, per the author, transfer cases. Given that probably few owners frequent auto forums compared to the full number of owners, this warrants documentation. Please add any new replacements to the thread and I will update the first post or correct it if I got it wrong. Thanks

Non-scientific chart. Not everyone gave mileage. Some people have had multiple transfer cases done. I doubt I caught everything and I'm sure I made mistakes. Expect this chart to not be totally accurate but its what I could figure out. Chart to be updated.

@grim , can you please correct my name post in there? I'm the 9/22/16 post you've got listed. It should be @Macanakey . The second "a" is missing. You're welcome to delete this post after you do that. Thanks.

Are most of these earlier cars, or does the problem persist for the later ones too?

I seem to be another addition to the transfer case issue. Macan 2016 Turbo, about 15K miles. Started noticing shuddering when accelerating from full stop. Took it to the dealer, and they diagnosed it as a rear transfer case problem, rather quickly. I have an appointment in a week or so for replacement.

I bought my 16 S in April of 2016. I had 10,000 miles on it when I had the transfer case replaced. Interesting question regarding if these are all 2015 and 2016 builds. FYI the Cheyenne has the same problem. I'm surprised Porsche hasn't published anything on this.

Took my '15 Macan S with 17400 miles in yesterday for the fuel pump flange recall. Came home with a new transfer case. Apparently this problem has become so common that dealers are now stocking replacements. Took about 2.5 hours to do the recall and transfer case swap. Although I had noticed some of the vibration and stuttering issues during backing and slow acceleration, it apparently developed slowly enough that I didn't realize how bad it was. I had mentioned it during a couple previous service visits and was told all was normal. Driving home yesterday was a night and day difference. Drives like a new Macan now.

I was going to ask how long it takes to get a transfer case replaced because my Porsche dealer has had my car a full work week and 2 weekends and I still don't have it back!

I brought the car in for a leak about 3 weeks ago. They resealed quite a number of elements and worked through a couple recalls over 3 days. When I got my car back I heard a noticeable a ticking a low speed so I had to return the next day. They explained the fuel pump had to be refitted properly and took 2 days to do it. When I got the car back the ticking was still quite noticeable so the car went in for a 3rd time. That's when I was told of the transfer case replacement. It's now been 10 days and the car is still in the shop...

Is this another Porsche thing that gentlemen of a certain standing casually put up with?

If the part is coming from Germany it can take a while. Not acceptable, but hopefully they at least gave you a Porsche loaner.

I wouldn't complain if the loaner was equal or better than my car but it's the base Macan that I have no pleasure driving.
