    Can some one please label these

    I have attached 2 pictures of our gearbox (W5A51).
    Can some please label these components for me.

    From what I know

    Red = Output of the gear box that goes into the transfer case .. all of the power front 2 wheels and back 2 wheel goes through this
    Yellow = because the front differential is in the transfer case not the gear box .. the is a return power for front left wheel
    Green = what is this ? seems like a differential

    but according to this video the front differential is in the transfer case

    I'm fairly sure the green part is the centre differential. Transmission output goes to the centre differential, the red and yellow drives go to the transfer box to engage with the viscous coupler and the front differential. Output from transfer box also feeding to the rear axle.

    I think of it like a conventional transfer box, shoved as close to the gearbox as possible - normally transmission output goes to a transfer box with the centre differential, which then sends power forwards and backwards to drive the front and rear axles. in this arrangement the centre differential is in-front of the front differential, but the working design is the same.

    Green is the centre diff.

    Red and yellow are front and rear drives going to the transfer box. Not sure which way round!

    The drive from the front diff in the transfer box to the wheels is along solid driveshafts, not tubes. So there is another shaft that fits through the hollow shafts in your photo to send drive to the front left wheel.

    This weekend I am going to Greece to visit my really good friend in his real estate in Athens and he is really good in parts and maintenance . I will show him your pictures and post his reply here next week.
