The BMW X5 showed up around 1998 and has captured our interest ever since. It is a beautiful addition and a bold move from BMW at the time and since have added two smaller SUVs to the production line. But like any other mechanical equipment, maintenance is a part of life and every now and then there are break downs that need to be addressed.
From its release to 2002 and some 2003 the transfer case used was the NV125. The NV stands for New Venture or also referred to in the industry as New Process.
After many years of selling parts for this transfer case we know the chain is a part that should be replaced whenever you have to go into the unit. And there are three other parts that should also be replaced which are the chain snubber, the plastic washer and the plastic caged bearing. These are wear parts and always a good idea to replace while in the unit.
If you try to purchase any parts from the dealer they will tell you that you need to replace the complete transfer case or as it is known in other parts of the world, the transfer box.
But with Cobra you have options. You can rebuild it yourself or purchase a remanufactured one from us, either way you choose the best option for you.
Our remanufactured NV-125 comes with new seals, bearings, chain, plastic washer, plastic caged bearing, snubber and hard parts are carefully inspected for optimum results and customer satisfaction. We would not sell a remanufactured unit we wouldn’t put in our own vehicle.
