Revisiting the New Venture 246 Transfer Case

The New Venture 246 transfer case has been in production since 1998. New Venture, however, is no longer with us, having been acquired by Magna International, a large conglomerate that is a tier 1 supplier to many of the global auto manufacturers. I wrote a previous in-depth article about the NV246, which you can download from our website (www.rsgear.com) for free, explaining the workings of this active-transfer-case theory of operation and electronic controls. Go to Technical, and find NV 246, Understanding the Tricks, under the transfer-case section. This article describes the design changes and the fixes for common problems and design defects for this unit.
