We have assembled here an identification guide for the current-production models of BorgWarner transfer cases, which will include a number of models that are not sold in the United States. Since we now have a global economy and Transmission Digest is read by technicians around the world, it is necessary to try to help our brothers in other countries to identify the complete line of transfer cases.
One of the most time-consuming and annoying problems associated with manual-transmission and transfer-case repair is unit identification. It is difficult to diagnose, buy parts or remanufactured units, and create a correct estimate for the customer when you cannot identify which unit you are working on. All units leave the factory well marked with decals, metal ID tags or both, but through use, weather and previous repairs, many of these ID devices become illegible or non-existent.
