Removing transfer case actuator

Need to replace the actuator gear on an 05 X5. Does the transfer case need to be drained before the actuator is removed or is this area sealed off? What size are the four torx bolts holding it on?

That's all your service work says? Sounds suspicious, like the time when a member's E70 brakes completely failed on the highway, and the dealer wouldn't give written documentation of the work.

These have been used in other vehicles not just X5 with good success. This is a company that makes racing level pads using in big time roadracing. They know what they're doing.

Memory question

I was looking at the specs for this T60 and the memory specs they call for seem a little strange. Maybe someone can clarify it.

Why does it say to use PC2-4200 533mhz if you're adding 2gb and 667...

I don't think that's correct. If you look at approved oil lists for more recent specs like from VW, you still won't find A5/B5 oils.

Maybe it's just me, but all I see is one door that needs to be replaced and one door that needs to have a dent pulled and repainted. Open the door and see what's going on with the b-pillar.
