Mechanic told me that it is hard to find used T-case for it is common problem. I will get a new TC price tomorrow. Labor estimate is 700 CAD (500+ USD).
New TC price $2,600 (cad)
I found & bought a used one (possibly rebuild) for $1,000, with 6 months warranty. They are taking my old one in exchange. Apparently it is good business, restoring Nissan transfer cases, because they have very little oil and fail very quickly if the seals start leaking.
Hopefully this used one will work & last.
UPDATE: got my Murano back, $1,800 (CAD) total bill (used TCase). Mechanic told me that used/rebuilt parts are 50/50 lottery.. Hopefully mine will last.
If I knew this before...
Lesson learnt: I WILL NOT wait for a Nissan recommended 50.000km interval for a transfer case fluid change. Will be changing it every 20.000km, hopefully will catch a problem sooner. At 50,000 km my oil was barely recognizable as oil at all - black and watery.
