 Description of the problemMy car made grinding / whirling noise while turning steering wheel more than half way. The noise was on and off for some time during parting lot speed turning. After doing some research, i took the car to a bmw repair shop. The mechanic said the transfer case and shaft were damaged and they would have to be replaced. It cost an astronomical $4,716. 34 to repair the issues. The mechanic said this problem is very common among bmw x5 and x3 and i was very unlucky to have it at 69k miles. I agree with the unlucky part. Bmw should own up the issue and pay for the repair.
