I have a 2012 Cayenne S which has done about 56k miles. When I turn the steering and press the accelerator, the rear left tyre judders. My brother observed that the wheel looks like it was 'locked'.
My mechanic disconnected the transfer case motor, and after he did that, everything was back to normal (there was a 4x4 error as the transfer case motor was disconnected). According to him, since the transfer case motor is disconnected, the transfer case was not being used and he came to the conclusion that there is a problem with the transfer case. Another gearbox specialist I consulted with said that the problem is due to the transfer case motor. According to him, even though the motor is disconnected, the transfer case is still being used. He also gave me some other reasons which I forgot. I am not sure who to believe.
BTW I have also done the following:-
1)Change the transfer case fluid
2)Change the rear axle fluid
3)Refurbish the rear left driveshaft
The problem became worse after doing the last 2! both the transfer case & axle fluid were dirty but nothing serious.
Can anyone help me identify a fluid leak? While changing oil on my '04 Cayenne S, I noticed a small leak coming from the drain (weep) hole of what I would normally call the bell housing which I assume is part of the transmission housing. There are 3 small holes in a row which appear to be drain holes. The fluid has the consistency of 90 weight oil. It is amber in color. It's not motor oil or transmission fluid (which I think is colored Red). Thanks!

We have a heavy snow here in Poland so I wanted to use reduction to get home safely.
Unfortunately a massage showed up on the screen which says that "4 wheel drive fault......"
Car is in the garage now and I cannot get it back to normal 4 wheel drive - reduction is still on. No chance to get it to second type of reduction. Massage stays on
I had 2 trials where I managed to get it back to normal 4 wheel drive as I thought that maybe snow did some damage or water etc. nothing.
I am looking at many topics here on the forum and it looks like it may be the servomotor?
The transfer case was not used very often.
Battery was changed 7 months ago.
Any ideas where to start?
No chance to connect it to durametric as I am over 100 km from Warsaw Porsche Stealership.
Need Your help Guys as I need this car to run smooth again.
Oil in the transmission was changed 3 weeks ago.
