Unfortunately this is nothing new with 4wd vehicles. The freelander2 has the same issues with the transfer box and haldex unit.

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
