Give it time . I still don't have my black car back yet . Once you have a loaner you are covered . Also dont worry about the loaner . In 2009 I was badly rear ended in their brand new loaner Cayenne . It was the other guy's fault as I was at a red light . Wife even got hurt , Even despite that I felt embarrassed taking back their crashed car . The first words out of there mouth were " are you ok, and thats what insurance is for." They , along with my insurance company and the other guy whose fault it was company worked it all out . In fact the next day they called to see how we were feeling again . They are just really that swamped .
Good news! I went to the dealer to get a dog seat I left in the car and the paperwork I didn’t get when I left the car for service last Saturday. Well, to my surprise, the car was ready. I didn’t get a call telling me what they found or how it was fixed, but it as ready nonetheless.
Turns out the transfer case fluid fill plug wasn’t tightened properly and that was the source of the leak. The transfer case was refilled, the plug torqued to spec, the case, pan and underside cleaned, car run tested and pronounced ready to go, all before I got there.
The loaner was returned unscathed with a full tank of gas (only half full when I got it). Other than a week without my baby, a long test drive in a Base and gifting the dealer a half tank of 93 Chevron, I’d say my S and I are none the worse for the experience.
Now I just hope the person that was supposed to originally tighten the transfer case fill plug didn’t forget to torque anything else. Alternatively, I hope he didn’t over torque the plug and crack the case (like one of our Forum brothers did). My wife has the ground lined with paper to check for more dripping.
It’s always something but this time I’m pretty sure everything is hunky dorey.
Thanks for all of your words of support and encouragement everyone 😁
