Great outcome !
But what did replacing the transfer case solve ??
Absolutely no idea if I'm honest!

After the mechatronics was replaced, I started having some clunking/juddering between 1st and 2nd, which when I was researching about the transfer case, it sounded like that could be the cause (on Porsche's website it says "This interruption in traction can be perceived as jerking or longitudinal vibration during acceleration.")

When I took it into Porsche, they agreed that there was a recall on the car for the transfer case to be replaced under warranty, so they replaced it.

As this didn't fix the issue, it went back to the gear specialist, who put the latest PDK software onto the car, and so far all seems fine.

In hindsight, I think Porsche would have replaced the transfer case regardless, and I believe it's the same for anyone with a 2014-2018 Macan. As we didn't buy the car new, we wouldn't have got an email saying the work needs doing.

Glad things worked out for you in the end. Not a nice way to start your ownership journey but hopefully it's in the past now.

Another week another issue!

Car was due a minor service, so took it in to the specialist.

Flagged a few issues which I'll need to address, some more urgently than others.

The engine mounts have degraded. Due to the heat and dryness we get in Dubai, it's caused the rubber in the mounts to start to perish. He's said they're "OK" for now, but at some point in the near future they'll need replacing.

The other slightly more concerning issue, which will need addressing asap, is the driveshaft support bearing.

The mechanic mentioned that the OEM part for this can be a little pricey, but has recommended a company called JBX, who apparently deal more with VAG cars, but do also seem to make them for the Macan

Another month... Another repair bill...
