04 Transfer Case with Torque on Demand

OK so here is the story in a nutshell.
Got the Kia had no 4x4 crawled under it to find out that the X-case had been switched to a non TOD model. Well I called the previous owner to find out what happened. Found out that the x-case was changed out by a local shop and they charged her $600 to change the case and when she got it back it still did not have 4x4. I called the shop and got the x-case back from them. I asked them why they changed it and he said they could not remember.
So here is the dilemma!
I have the original in the garage and the non TOD one in the garage
according to the previous owner it made noise that's why she brought it in.
How do I tell if something is wrong with the TOD one before putting it back in and finding out there was or is an issue?

Also is there any parts in the NON TOD one that are usable for the TOD one if there is an issue?

Is there any way to tell if its working right by manually turning the actuator in the case and seeing what shafts spin?

the TOD one when I spin the input shaft always spins the front output shaft regardless of the selector position.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
thanks

Its a 04 sorento EX with TOD transfer case.

RE: 04 Transfer Case with Torque on Demand

Nice shop. I don't quite understand why they would swap it out and then hand it back not functioning, but whatever.

The transfer cases are completely different and I'd be surprised if even one part was interchangable with the other. Chances are, the previous owner brought it in for a reason and they diagnosed the reason as a bad transfer case. Unless it was really bad, there isn't any way to tell if it is bad unless you pull it apart.

Well I looked in the fill hole and the chain is sloppy I think anyway it moves up and down over an inch. I think this may be an issue

Sounds like it may have broke.

No it did not break. nothing in the case looks out of place other than the chain appears to be loose. dont suppose anyone knows how to tell if clutch plates are bad LOL.

I'd take the t-case to a small time tranny shop. Since it's out of the vehicle already, and if you ask them to work on it in their spare time, they might give you a good deal.

Just a follow up! I got the case split and I ordered a new chain for it. It works great no more loud noise and it got me back on my way for only $90 for the chain from Transstar. Now there is only about 1/2" of play in the chain!
