    Slipping gear in 4x4 low

    Brand new owner here of a new 2018 X4. I started driving this morning down a steep hill. I came to a stop and put the X4 into 4x4 lo from 4x4 high without locking diff engaged. Upon starting to move downhill it started to grind gears and lurch forward as slipping gears was overcome by gravity. Seems to not be an issue going uphill...only down.

    Sounds like a linkage adjustment if it does it regularly, or maybe you just didn't get it all the way into gear?

    Thank you...Is that reasonably easy to do?

    Not sure about the x2 but I’d guess it’s similar to the gen 1. Under the center console on the gen 1 is the linkage shaft. Loosen the lock nut on each end and twist the rod to achieve the desired result. I was just playing with mine this week. It always vibrated in low at the handle. I made a small adjustment that made it relax a little and solved the vibration. I 1st went to far and it wouldn’t engage in low so I suppose it’s possible that is where the problem is. A small adjustment may make it engage more fully!
