97 Legacy Transmission

Hello,



I purchased a 97 Legacy L 2.2 automatic wagon a couple of weeks ago. The previous owner drove the vehicle with different sized tires and now the car is extremely sluggish in low speed sharp turns. The dealership mechanics told me I need to replace the “transfer clutch” for $2100.



I have since replaced the tires and put the fuse in 2wd mode to prevent further damage.



I would like to do the work myself but I can’t find a transfer clutch part online, or in my Haynes manual.



My 2 questions are:



Is the transfer clutch replacement a valid remedy for this problem?



How long can I drive the car with the 2wd fuse in
