What\'s a shifter sheet in the T-Case?

I got everything working in my jammed T-case but I didn't see anything that would look like what I'd assume a shifter sheet to be. Here's what I did and what it looked like...

I removed shift lever as I was told to do, looked down inside and saw two shafts, each about the size of a magic marker. The shafts were parallel to each other and faced the front of the Sami. On each of these shafts was a notch. I took a flat prytool and got the notches lined up perfect then reassembled everything. The shifter worked but bound up again. so, I repeated the process and nothing has happened since. I don't see anything that could be easily replaced nor anythong which looked like a shifter sheet. Are the shifter sheets the rods? If so, wouldn't I have to open the T-case to replace them? The gear oil looks clear but smells bad. Is gear oil supposed to stink? If not, how do I replace it? THANKS!!

It's just where the ball of the shifter rotates. just stick your finger down and pull it up.

You still got the windhshield for me, by the way?

Cap'n,
The sheet is actually a round rubber like bushing that the ball part of the shifter fits into. If there wasn't anything in there then it's probably turned to mush. Just call a dealer or one of the Zuk vendors and they should be able to fix you up.

Re: What\'s a shifter sheet in the T-Case?

I wouldnt even call it a ball, its like a rubber diaphram punched through. Mine was so disintegrated that i pulled it out in about 400 mushed peices. Easy fix. I went to the junk yard and got three good ones no prob. Yeah gear oil stinks at first then you get to like the smell.....

mxnhid ,Is that your excuse for buying your girl a gallon of gear oil - instead of that "Channel # 5" that she really wanted ? Here's a tip : not everyone "gets off" on it quite as much as you do !

I think "shifter sheet" is a typo for "shifter seat" .

Now that I think of it, a shifter seat makes much more sense! But, when I posted the stuck T-case dilemna two people responded by calling it a "sheet" which made absolutely no sense when I opened it up. I get it, a SHIFTER SEAT!

Here it is in all it’s glory.



“Sheet” or “Seat”? Must be one of those things that get’s lost in the translation, eh??

Shifter sheet could be a bad translation, but that's what you need to ask for when ordering one from SUZUKI.
