    I don't know the 'factory' procedure for the Toyota, but it likely doesn't require removing the engine. A friend of mine is a Toyota tech and they have found all the tricks to bring the price down to...

    This is a good thread. I'm a 2010 CX-9 owner, trying to get one more winter out of it. (former Mazda 6 wagon owner too) I'm also a conflicted Tacoma owner ;) I know the Tacoma will last forever, but...

    Sorry to hear about your second transfer case failure. Mine all happened within the 7yr warranty window. I'd be surprised if they do anything to help for an 8 yr. old car. But, if you've had your...

    I will try to take a look at it over the holidays if I can get access to a friends heated garage with a lift.

    See Puma's photos above:

    How is the solenoid affixed to the ring in the coupling? Is the whole assembly removable?

    Great job! As usual, the first time is the hardest, but now armed with your video, everyone else can save a lot of time. The wires on mine have broken again, causing an intermittent 4WD light coming...

    You're right about the last point. That's why I spent the money on the repairs, which might only be 4 months of new car payments. If I get 6 months more use from the car, I'm ahead.

    Not sure of all the other FoMoCo parts in your list, but the brakes and wheel bearings are Ford. I wouldn't be surprised if the control arms and ball joints are too.

    Regarding failure rates of the...

    Update: The good news is the transfer case is ok.

    The noise was coming from a heat shield that broke and was dragging on the top of the driveshaft to rear diff. I would only hear it at low...

    No warning lights were triggered with this. The rear diff solenoid would still engage, but since there was no power getting to the rear wheels, they weren't being driven. But the car didn't know...

    This forum has saved me tons of cash already on my 2010 CX-9. I diagnosed the failed transfer case in about 10 minutes, which caused a broken output shaft from the transmission.

    That's a big step down in size. I had a CX-3 as a loaner when my 2010 CX-9 was in for Transfer case repair.
    I don't think I could give up the space and solidity of the larger car. Maybe a CX-5, but...

    My dealer sent my Trans to an independent specialist that cannibalized a used one.
