Thread is not applicable to 212. Dealer is correct in wanting to check TC providing axle drive & shaft are fine several internal parts have been replaced since vehicle production see attachment. No cost under factory warranty, out of warranty consider having independent check it. If you decide to have dealer perform repair and they claim parts shown were replaced speak with service manager to request MB goodwill assistance given originals must no longer be installed indicating modification.

Just bought a 2014 E350 4matic in January 2018 and just got a call from the dealership claiming it's the clutch pack? in the transfer case. Cost to repair is $1,800. Konigstiger - Is something that might be covered under the goodwill assistance or any of the bulletins you mentioned? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

My 2014 E350 4matic just started rumbling/burring/vibrating at sharp turns too, at 59000 miles. The dealer wants to open the transfer case, change the oil, and said something about clutches in there. Dealer wants $2200.

Can you email me the magic recipe too?
Yikes! That's scary. How many miles on your 2014?

Have dealer check VMI to confirm service campaign 2007100004 is applicable if so, repair is free. If not speak with service manager, reference bulletin 28.50/11 (of which your VIN is with range) to request MBUSA goodwill repair.

Hello Konigstiger,
I finally went to the MB dealer , checked my VMI and they said that my car was not included, but with a help of a friend we were able to perform a DIY and changed the fluid, and the problem is solved.
Do you mind checking for me for the same VIN number (WDBUF87J16X201921) if my car is included for free replacement of the balance shaft?
The check engine came on, I hooked the OBD and threw P0016 , P0017 and i am thinking that if the cam sensors are not dead, the balance shaft would be the issue.

I appreciate your help.

Thank you

Thank you very much,
so I should take it right to MB dealer or I better check the sensors first myself, ?
Another point , does the year affect anything? As mine is 2006 , it is already 12 years old with 92k miles on it!

Year/mileage does not matter inferior parts installed can fail at any time. Independent should offer cost effective repair cost as compared to dealer, DIY check:

When you do the fluid change for TC, over-filling 50-100ml more fluid is always a good idea, because there are some friction discs (sorry I donít know the exact name) on the upper potion.
just my 2 cents.
