Tranfer Case stuck in gear

My transfer case will not shift out of 2 wheel drive. I've noticed from searching that in all of the postings I could find, bad shifter sheets caused it to hang in neutral. Is it possible for it to hang in 2 w/d?

Re: Tranfer Case stuck in gear

yeah, they can hang anywhere when the sheet goes bad...mine usually gets a little sticky coming out of 4wheel drive...don't mash it...you may want to wiggle it while putting medium pressure on it, or just open it up and see if you can work it past the spot....or even better, you can order the part(like i've been to lazy and broke to do) for $10...i think Rocky road has them, Hawk Suzuki has them, and i'm pretty sure Petroworks has them...[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: Tranfer Case stuck in gear

I think that this is becoming the most asked question ever!

Besides the "sheet", which actually looks like a big washer with a socket-like surface that the pivot ball sits in, you need to re-align the two shifter bars that the end of the shift lever makes contact with. Each bar has a square notch in it.

Remove the retainer by pressing down and turning it. Take the shifter lever out, remove the "sheet", then reach in with a screw driver and push the bars until the two notches are side by side forming a square hole that the end of the shifter rod fits in. insert the new sheet, insert the shifter rod into the hole so that the end fits in the square hole formed by the rods. Twist on the retainer piece until it locks into place (good luck. Do not try this after consuming barley pop -- it will only make you very cranky!)

It should now shift okay.

Ack

BillyBob:

It would be my pleasure! NOT!

I did it straight and/or sober it took me an hour and a half.

What a pain in the A$$ job that was!

It was a battle royale -- me an that da%^ed piece of stamped metal! Sweat trickling off my brow. The air turning electric blue with my swearing...

In the end, I conquered it with a screwdriver and infinite patience.

I think that two people can actually do it in fifteen minutes... Got two screwdrivers and a bottle of rum? Or is that orange juice, vodka and a pair or pliers...


Ack

Re: Tranfer Case stuck in gear

Dang!

I fergot about your body lift... (& something else...)

Really, dear readers, getting that retainer in is not easy, but you can do it with patience & a screwdriver (or two) -- assuming you don't have a body lift.

Yer buds,

Re: Tranfer Case stuck in gear

Billybob. I struggled for a while trying to get that little #@$%^tard back in. Found that I had a washer in there that didn't need to be under the shift sheet. (Trying to remember, yes, think that was the problem). Not sure where it ended up going, think it was on top of the spring or something. Anyway, it is possible. If it absolutely won't go, there is a chance something is wrong. And even when it is right, it isn't exactly effortless.
