Yes, I've had mine done - service campaign WLE9.

I mentioned it here: viewtopic.php?f=26&t=9997&start=10#p199363

(We could do with a 'sticky' for Service Campaigns; just a list of the designations and a brief description. I've had WG22, AJ07, WKL0 (all DME) and WLE9 (Transfer Case Fluid) so far ...)

Good idea about a 'sticky'. I don't know what these recalls are or if my car has had them done

Any 'recalls' should be documented under 'Service Campaigns' in your Maintenance Manual. Here's the relevant page of mine:

Presume you mean to the transfer box? Haven't driven much since the fluid was changed, but then it didn't have any typical failure symptoms prior to this, so unfortunately I can't express an opinion! Only time will tell! :)

I thought mine was smoother pulling away and changing gear after the oil change.
