Default Transfer case leak - 2009 Murano

Hi,

Noticed a small leak the other day (only has leaked once) in the garage and brought it in to the dealer. He confirmed it was a transfer case seal leak. He booked me in for May 11 (10 days from today). He said it would not harm the vehicle and I also mentioned to him that i was going out of town next wk, with a lot of highway driving. He again confirmed that it would not harm the vehicle. The vehicle only has 25K on it. I would just like some of the valued opinions on this forum to provide their input.

Thanks,

If you are going on a long trip it would be a good idea to have them top off the fluid before you leave.

Update: Brought the Murano in to the dealer, they replaced the transfer case seal, took it for a test drive and noticed it was still leaking. Now, they are going to replace the entire transfer case. Although, they can't find one right now...

We just did one last week. Didn't have any problems getting one.

Not that it really matters, but if you never got your vehicle back after the repair then they lied to you. They either never got the right part, damaged "something" during the repair, or saw that it was more than just a seal. Oh well, it's still free for you.

just curious, how many seals does the transfer case have? 1, 2 or ?? is it possible they replaced the wrong one, if there is more than one.

Thanks,

There is a total of 3 seals on the transfer case.. Right side axle seal, left side input shaft seal and the output shaft seal for the rear driveshaft. The seal that leaks is the one between the transfer case and the transmission (left side input). When that is changed they also need to change the seal on the transmission where the input shaft goes in.

MPE235 thanks for the reply. well, my saga continues...just spoke to the dealer and they can not find any transfer cases in Canada...and for some reason (will call him back today for more clarification) they can't order from the USA...so they have to order from Nissan in Japan...i can't believe this...they've had my Murano for 5 days and can't give me a date of when I should be getting it back....

MPE235, was the transfer case you replaced a new or used?

Thanks,
