4WD Lever

I need to know what happened. I (please don't laugh) got stuck in my yard this morning backing out of my drive. I have a concrete drive and back and turn around on what normally is dirt. Well, after it sank. I went to engage the 4WD lever by pulling up. It was a bit hard and I pulled a little harder. It went POW/POP and went totally loose on me. moving up and down with no anything happening. What did I break? This is on an 89' Grand Wagoneer.

Re: 4WD Lever

If it is anything like my chevy the lever that sticks through the floor on the bottom of that it goes to another lever that goes th the t-case. Yours might have slipped/popped off. Check that. Dont know if your setup is the same. Good luck.

Re: 4WD Lever

Ummm . . . you went to put it in 4wd or 4wd LOW? I'm just asking to see if you flipped the vac switch on the dash first . . . then tried to put the T-case into Lo range by using the lever on the floor. Remember that the T-case will not shift into Lo range unless it is in 4wd. Not being able to move the lever is an indication that the vacuum system failed to engage the 4wd. Haynes has some good pics on the linkage for the T-case and shows how to check and adjust them, might help. Hopefully you just popped the little clip that holds the lever in place off. I hope that helps

I do think that that is just what I did. I'll go under on my day off and check for sure. Thanks for the info.
