Are parts still available to rebuild a ML320 tcase? I can't afford a new one and likely used ones from the yards will also be well worn.
Thanks Matt, as I recall a usd tcase from a 2000 or later ML320 is desired. Anyone know what changes were made to the case in 2000?I don't think you'll rebuild one that cheaply. I would go the 2nd hand route. There is heaps of them on eBay for around $3-400
Great question. Everyone leaves out the most important detail.What is wrong with your transfer case?

You're both right and patient with me, I tend to focus on a solution rather than sharing the background info.Great question.**Everyone leaves out the most important detail.
There was also an intermediate solution of 49/51 split. Still to this day 50/50 is best for advanced off road trips.The 1998 into late 1999 us MLs had the TC set to a 50/50 split. Owners were feeling it in very tight turns. Mb told them it was normal.
However in the very last of the 1999 models and starting with all 2000 year models the TC split was changed to 48/52 which essentially cured the the early build years' isuues.
To this day our 1999 still gets a bit of a tightness/binding in lock to lock tight manuevers, but the 2000 320 is very smooth doing the same thing based the updated torque split.
Thx for the input!And how do you know its not the front propshaft CV joint or the u-joints ? Have you gone under the car & pushed/pulled the propshaft trying to replicate the sound?
But you don't have Eastern EU accent.:elefant:It is basically that simple, but the weight of the TC is the issue. I have only done one, but had a lift and did use a post jack to hold the transmission in place and then a transmission jack to handle the TC.
