Anyway, will do the flush tomorrow.
I hope its cdv making this noise cause transfer case is not cheap at all. Do transfer cases have high failure rate on manual transmissions in our cars?
I use ate superblue for the brakes/clutch. Redline fluids for the driveline- 75w90 in the diffs, D4 in the TC, and a D4/MTL mix in the gearbox.

I would do all the fluids anyway and have a good look at the TC mount.

No the TC's don't have a high failure rate at your mileage.
