Excuse my ignorance but can I know what are the signs / signals indicating that there is a problem with the transfer box?

My car (Macan S petrol) is 3 months old 2,500 miles. The driveway up to my house is on a slight incline, if I drive in, stop to park on the incline when I put it in park there's a slight clunk, This didn't happen on this driveway with other cars I've had.

My car clunks from front suspension when manoeuvring on full lock

Is this normal or a sign of this problem ?

Thanks

Look up “reverse ackerman” (quite normal and not transfer box related)

What does this MOTUL DCTF cost? Some of their gear oil seems to sell for well over £2,000.- !

Late 2017 SD owned from new - Just had transfer box replaced @ 28,000 miles of mainly longer motorway miles. Gradual deterioration over 6month to the point that it was like a kangaroo if you put it in off road mode on full lock!!! Dealer mech said it was by regular job for them and mine was far from the worse he'd driven. Shocking that this is clearly a known problem but no sign of a recall for checking - maybe Porsche were hoping my car would be outside warranty before it failed!!!!
I'm planning on keeping the car for 5-6 years so will be looking for Porsche GB to show their support with an extended warranty :-)
