Alfa 159 SW 2,4 jtdm Q4 transfer case/ transfer box failure
Not a very active forum member previously but have quite a biggish problem now with my Alfa. It is well maintained and I'm second owner and it has 149 thousand kilometers now.
I've had in now less than half a year and 15tkm. It makes quite a bad wizzling noise when you have gear on and push the gas pedal. When the pedal is released it stoppes. Had the car checked and the mechanic says that the transfer case bearing has gone bad and it can not be replaced. Have to put new transfer case which naturally costs arm and leg (and haven't actuelly been able to locate one).
To me the whole thing sounds weird, less than 100 thousand miles (most people here understand miles better, right?) and normal civilian use and already a big problem with Q4...
If anyone knows similar cases or has info on where to ask or find parts please let me know.
