help with installing t-case bushing Please!

Hello... I have a classic case of a transfer case stuck in neutral and of course i'm trying the bushing first... How do i do it? So far all i've done is simply try to pry out the metal washer or whatever it is that is around the t-case shifter... but it won't budge... what's the trick? thank you ahead of time!

Push down and turncounterclock wise at the same time on the metal thing and it should pop right up.Then you can remove the shifter to get to the crumbs that were your shifter sheet.Hope this helps

Suzuki Samurai Transfer Case Repair Bushing Installation

First peel your carpet back away from the transfer case shifter then remove the four screws that hold down the shifter boot to the body. Unscrew the transfer case shifter knob then pull off the boot. Now reach down into the transfer case shifter hole and remove the retaining clamp and then pull the boot strait up the stick. Using a long flat blade screwdriver push down on the circular retaining plate that holds in the stick shift and then turn counter clockwise a quarter turn to unlock it. You should be able to pull the stick shift strait up out of the socket. Look down into the socket and remove the little rubber washer with a set of needle nosed pliers. Install the new bushing so that the concave side is up so the ball of the shifter will set back into it. Make sure it is seated properly at the bottom of the socket hole under the two shifter alignment pins. Re-install the shifter assembly in reverse order of removal. When the old bushing deteriorates it leaves rubber particles floating around in the transfer case so it is always recommended that you change out your transfer case gear oil if you have not done so recently.
