Penny Wise, LB Foolish.

I'll wait till Cobra opens up so I can have a live conversation.
OE seals or their aftermarket seals at 75% LESS.....
Yup thatís it. The drain one was full between the magnet and bolt. I was surprised.

How much crap was on the flex magnet - the thin one that sits in the slot in the casing

I'm planning on new plug and 50/50 on the flex.
With that said,I would think the magnet is still dang strong on the flex and the latter may have lost some magnetisim

----
Cobra is adament that if the case is cracked open, go the extra mile and change out that flex magnet.

Huh. Go figure. I was all set on NV125 parts. Turns out it's a LWX500

You don't hear much about the LWX500 transfer case. Not sure if that's because they are few and far between (apparently only used for short period in 2003) or because they are more reliable than the NV125 more commonly used on the pre-facelift cars...

For the WIKI as I read this thread in whole like 9 years later....

I was all set on ordering NV125 parts. Turns out I had the LWX500.
The chain is the same. I did order from Cobra since I did call them and ask what are your thoughts on this magnetic strip. We had a conversation, they earned the business. The chain can be found for 25% less elsewhere...

The big difference was the seals for the LWX500. Buy the seals for this at your favorite OE dealer. It is cheaper.
