      Yes AWD!
      They are notorious for bad transfer cases.

            What issue are you having with it? My MKX had a shaft seal leak. The dealership (warranty) ended up replacing the shaft as well as the PTU, just replacing the seal didn't seem to do it. If you are putting a new one in you might want to add a drain plug so you can drain and fill once and a while. Many issues fort the MKX PTU is a result of the lube thickening up due to heat.

              It was making a loud whining noise. Sounded like an Muncie M22 "Rockcrusher" 4 speed manual.
              All better now thanks for the tip.

                    Thats one of the major reasons why I just bought the ford extended premium service plan for 8 years and 100k on my MKX. I already had the PTU replaced once under warranty as well as some other work done.
