Re: Aguh!!! Stuck in \"N\" help pro\'s!!!
Take the T-case boot off from the floor of the Sami.
Remove the metal clamp on the smaller boot on the bottom of the shifter arm and pull the boot up.
Apply force to the metal cap which holds the shifter in the T-case and turn counter clockwise (I think. If it's the other direction, you'll know.) The cap is spring loaded and will pop up when it's fully turned.
Once the cap is out of the way, the shifter arm will pull out. Pull it out.
Now, look inside and you will see two shafts (parallel to each other) which point front to rear. On each of these shafts is a notch which -when in the correct location- the two will form a square where the shifter "ball" will fit into.
Using a large FLAT screwdriver -or other large flat tool- inset the flat end into the area and turn/jam, push. bang, knock the two bars forward or backwards til both of the notches form a square.
Once this is done, reverse the disassemble procedure and the t-case will go back into 2wd.
Once you are home call Tim at NCO or another reliable aftermarket vendor and say, "I need a shifter sheet."
