Thanks Ttmacan,
That officially ended the under carriage wash at the touch less car wash for me......until I can figure out how to extend the vent away....as you did.

This thread is somewhat depressing. Transfer case failure and oil leaks seem to be happening left and right. I just want to know how many people DID NOT have those two problems and what is your mileage?

I bought my CPO Macan S two months ago. It now has a little over 18K mi. Neither of those two problems had happened yet.
I purchased my Macan new in 2014 (ordered in May, delivered in August). 5 years and 62K miles later; not a single issue. This is absolutely the best vehicle I have ever owned, including my other Porsches and BMWs.
I live in the Northern Virginia area and drive it hard in all types of weather.
I've never towed anything with it (besides pulling a police cruiser out of a snow bank); wonder if that has anything to do with the issue. I once smoked a transfer case on a pickup by exceeding the tow capacity ?‍♂

I looked up the Porsche parts catalog at the Porsche website. Main group 3: Gearbox. section 305-000

There are three transfer box parts. Remember, the Macan is a 95B. The Cayenne is 958. Cayenne part is not the same part #, 958 341 020 03

Macan is 95B 341 010 >> - 04.03.2018 Then there is

95B 341 010 X >> - 04.03.2018
95B 341 010 A 05.03.2018>>
95B 341 010 AX 05.03.2018>>

I have no idea how to translate that since both the original part number and the X says >> 3/4/18 But it looks like the A and AX say after 3/5/18

Date of the document is 19.07.2018. Since EU is backwards from US in date format, your looking at 7/19/18 and the new transfer case looks like after 3/5/18

Confirmation on Build Date for new transfer cases

2018 macan turbo here... can anyone confirm what year/month build date the new transfer cases that supposedly have the transfer case issue and vent sorted out is..?

I think that’s what the post above mine is about, but is it also possible to tell by inspecting the TC visually?

Hi, I have a 2015 S that was registered in Sept 2014. I bought it used in Dec of 2016 with 48,500km and now have 98,000km on the car. It has had no transfer case issues, but is scheduled to have a leaky timing chain cover repaired.

2018 GTS with 9,600 miles. No timing cover or transfer case issues. I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

I might be very close and this is a bit unsettling. I placed my order on 4/7/18 and went into V250 status a week later. Build date on the VIN tag is 4/18.

Macan in for an oil change the afternoon of Wednesday the 21st.
Last year, after removing the under-tray, the tech said, "It looks brand new up there."
I hope it still does. . .

You can add my oil leak on my 2017 Macan GTS (May 2017)to that growing list. I believe this is just the beginning to the end. I will be following these forum's on the oil leaks and transfer case problems. I have noticed most of the vehicle's reported are the 17 GTS,and S models 15, 16. I am curious how many 2018 GTS and S owners will have the same issues in 2020. I reckon if they do....that's about the time your going to see **** hit the fan. I would love to know how many German spec Macans are having the same issues in Germany? I was stationed in Germany for 6 years when I was in the USAF.I can tell you for some german model cars...there is a difference in quality for German spec cars....and the ones mass produced for the other side of the pond!

Curious how you know this. Can you offer more specifics?

Very surprising given that cars bound for Germany are made on the same assembly lines, and I doubt the average line worker is cognizant of what country each car is bound for as they come down the line,

Probably not the best data point due to low miles:

No transfer case (or any) issues thus far:
- 2018 GTS and just had my 10k service.
- Have been running Stage 1+ Cobb Tune and Flat6 filters since 3k miles.
- Driven daily, and through one new England winter so far
