So just to get my head around this, the transfer box wears it self out by rattling loads. The video shows a really simple fix if you catch the problem in time. Surly this part would be covered by life time warranty if you still in it. If not surly VX has a responsibility to say its their fault and will help with the cost. If later on the transfer box develops a hole then its got to be faulty product.


GM seem to try and cut corners and i seems to bit them in the backside.
How do you know your transfer box is on the blink as you could say?

News this morning , Opel ( Vauxhall for you! But always GM ) recognizes 90% of the defect , it proposed a new Transfer box .
The problem is that it will come in two / three months !!!!!

I think I'll fix up the old trasnferbox , changing the bearings.</pre>

Wonder how many parts will still be available as the Antara goes out of production.

I believe when a model goes out of production they have to make parts available for 10yrs .unless the company goes bust .i am not worried about it

A friend of mine had his transfer box replaced recently under warranty at 33000 miles due to a bearing failure.
