Question Asked: Actual estimate to replace "Transfer case" and how something like this breaks?
October 08, 2013, 12:46 PM
Sunday night I was driving down an interstate and I started hearing loud pops like my tires were popping .. I almost lost control. I eventually ended up in the middle median.
My RX330 was towed to a garage where the obvious break was my back rear driver axle - they replaced this - once completed the truck would not move. It was then towed to the Lexus dealership who has advised the transfer case - a sealed unit that uses the transmission to push power to the rear wheels went which in turn broke the first point of connection being my rear axle . .
My rear axle has been fixed by the first garage . .
Lexus has quoted me $2597 for parts and $2498 for labor = $4952.03
Does anyone know anything about this?
Any help is appreciated . . .my truck is at the dealership and I don't know how to respond :( Please help.
