Default AWD Not working

Hello All
I have a 96 Legacy LS 2.2 Autotranny with 177K on the clock. The AWD is not working with no power to the rear wheels. There are no lights on the dash that stay on, the FWD fuse slot is empty.

So I am assuming that duty solenoid "C" is gone or the clutch pack is gone. Is there a way for me to test the solinoid?

I just got this car the other week dumped a bunch of money into it for state inspection, then it snowed this AM and it became very clear the AWD was not working.

If I install a fues into the FWD fuse slot the FWD loght on the dash does come on.

So if I choose not to fix this issue how long could I expect the tranny to work?

If I choose not to fix it would it be better to install the FWD fuse and/or remove the rear drive shaft?

Thanks in advance for any input!!

I concur you'll probably have more luck asking here.

Sounds to me like installing the FWD fuse is a somewhat moot point, as the center diff has already been disabled via some sort of fault. But I'm definitely no 4EAT expert, so I could be wrong.
