Is there an alternative available that I can pick up locally, or is it still dealer or mail order (Ravenol, Fuchs, etc) only?

Need more info on this transfer case fluid.

What vehicle, year, driveline component, etc.

For every action there is an equal and opposite opposite criticism. shrug

The specific component in question is the transfer case for a '12 Touareg TDI. The VW part number is: G 052 515 A2.

Why not just buy from the dealer and get the correct stuff? I have found the products at the VW dealer near me are reasonably priced and they have a record of the purchase.

I can’t find any compatibility tool saying this is ok for your 2012 Touareg TDI but my BMW requires TF-0870 and this is what I use:

https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/bmw-transfer-case-fluid-1-liter-shell-83222409710

In the description it says: “This fluid is also known as TF0870.”

I think there might be different variations of TF-0870 so I would do some research before using

Moving forward I will either use Motul DCTF or Redline MT-LV, both shown as suitable for TF-0870.
