Below is a video from an E83 X3, a few people commented that there is no need to separate the motor, is this true?

...Couple of key points that will help with this: to remove the top star bolts on the servo motor, use an angled socket adapter. This makes life ALOT easier when loosening those bolts. Second: you do not need to separate the motor from the housing on the servomotor, the gear will come out very easily once the clip and metal plate is removed. I actually completed this repair for the second time on my 2007 X3, and will be posting the video shortly. Well done on the video, thank you.

yes u r right no need to remove the motor.. a waste of time and safer to just leave it. I did it to my X3 also. I din not replace my gear I just use the other side and works like brand new again. I cleaned and put more and new grease more than they put in before.

Ive got to do this to the wife's 2005 x5 but Im going to replace the whole assembly this time. I will save the old assembly and order a gear for it and fix it and have it on hand if ever needed again. I figure with all the miles it has on it I will just replace the entire thing this time since I have read where people have had trouble with the plate when changing the gear.

Would the DSC 'Inactive' light showing up sporadically and not being able to toggle it even with the warning light not being on be a sign of needing to be replaced? Something I've had since I bought the vehicle but never caused me any problems and accelerates fine most of the time.

Edit: As described in the video, the "trifecta" lights of all three coming on... thats what I meant. Not just the DSC Inactive, but it pops up before all three of the lights come on.

Since you have the non-xDrive transfer case (NV125 vs ATC500) you don't have this gear etc.

Also, the DSC warning wouldn't be related to the transfer case operation unless the transfer case was so compromised as to allow a speed difference between the front and rear drivelines.

From your other post about ATF on the ground, I'm guessing you may have a "compromised" transfer case - damaged chain or sprockets etc....

Ah okay, thank you for the clarification on that. Good thing I didn't order that gear already. :

I'll have to bite the bullet I guess and get INPA connected to it to try and find out where the warning lights are coming from. My SnapOn Computer doesn't show any information or codes stored for the lights coming on.

It was bought with 245k Miles with no service history so I should have expected something like this.

Clicks at shutdown followed by trifecta today. What gear should I purchase (several are mentioned throughout this thread). Thanks to OP for this, his video and others for helpful comments which encourage me to dive in!

FYI if it wasn't mentioned, BMW now offers a repair kit for the transfer case servo, pn: 27102413711. Comes with everything needed including new cover plate and sealant to weatherproof the opened case for about $140 online

FYI, there is an upgraded gear available, not sure if it is aftermarket or is now the BMW replacement. I really don't think it matters as original gear usually lasts a 100,000 miles or more.
