I have it on good authority that the "old" transfer case hardware part number is "95B.341.010" and the "new" is "95B.341.010.A"
Not sure what the "X" designation is on yours. Apparently, "Gas nitrocarburizing (GNC)" is now used to coat the clutch plates on the new transfer case. The new transfer case requires that new software be installed in the transfer case control module specifically for the new model. The "Gas nitrocarburizing (GNC)" supposedly strengthens or reinforces the clutch plates.
There is a revised transfer case PN. Not super-easy, but if you (or they) have a chance to look under the car you can confirm which one it has.
The problematic transfer cases end in -X.
The reinforced transfer case ends in either -A or -AX.
March 2018 is the GNC Transfer box date change.
We know this for sure now, per Porsche.
So glad my new TX case has that letter “A” at the end

You had to go to three separate dealers to get this addressed? So much for owning a 'luxury' car. This is Porsche failure.I went to Nashua first last February, they just totally brushed me off, I had them do an oil change and code my trailer hitch, but wouldn’t spend any time on the buck issue.
I went to Porsche Norwell twice, great people there, first time they enabled carplay for me and second time did an Oil change, so it wasn’t just a complaint about the buck they were also getting paid to do something. But Norwell said it’s the summer tires, it’s the ground isn’t flat or the tires are skipping, everything but the issue.
brought it to Porsche of Burlington Tuesday just for this issue and they saw it right away. Haven’t got an update yet, but I think they will take care of it finally!
Unfortunately, yes three dealers. After the second time to Porsche Norwell I called Porsche customer care line or whatever it is, and the guy knew exactly the problem I spoke about and said to try a larger volume dealer.You had to go to three separate dealers to get this addressed?
