@gcmarcal: For our type of Captiva I think is even easier, you just remove the middle gears and shaft and leave everything else in place.

My Captiva 2011 135 kw manual also doesn't work 4WD. I just bought it and it didn't work at the beginning. So diagnostic don't find any mistakes, also during the test, we found what 4 veels don't work together, also you can easy to turn cardan witch is going to rear differential and it rear veels go well. Any noise in the transfer case.
So my assessment is that could be middle Drive shaft (part 26) removed, because of any noise, the transfer case is not broken. Before total removal transfer case, I am going to remove from the back part 37 and look inside, how it looks. I also already ordered new 4 bearings, as I understood the middle shaft right side bearing is the weakest point. I also started looking for used transfer case, it also not easy and prices are around 500 eu (new one around 1500 eu). I sow that it is different numbers for automatic and manual gears auto. If my transfer case corpus is good I can change only inside parts, it easy to find.
Is it any differences in transfer case inside parts for manual and automatic auto? Thanks.

Great video that, saw your comment on it about the heat shield - that's because it's got the V6 petrol engine in it, you just see him removing the CAT and there's no DPF.

The manual transfer case assembly has a different part number from the automatic transmission version so there may well be differences in the internal parts. I believe the transfer case for the automatic uses the same Transmission Fluid as the gearbox.

What about shell spirax S5? that's the transmission fluid i use in my trans. It does have JWS 3309 spec though. Can i put those fluid in my transfercase?

Ibmibam, It is unlikely that Forum Members will 'guess' what is suitable for your vehicle. You havent advised the model variant/engine/gearbox etc.
I would suggest you discuss the suitability of lubricants with your dealer where ever you are in the World . (You didnt complete this info in your Sign Up)

For readers of this post, for some strange reason the original post is not showing once I post this reply. ??

I’ve got captiva diesel series 1 (2010) 2.0 AWD with an automatic transmission. And i put Shell spirax S5 in my transmission. So as long as i know the viscosity of the fluid is 75W-90 and that’s the same with our transfercase spec. Sorry for an inadequate information 🥲
