No 4 Low or Neutral ....

I can't seem to get my transfer case into either Neutral or 4 Low.

The issue seems to be that I cant get the down motion on the shifter. I looked underneath and all linkages look intact. What's going on is the cylinder type device that houses a spring / piston of some sort that moves the small rod down and to the notches for 4 low and neutral is seized up solid. I get 2 High to 4 High smooth as silk but can't get that down motion needed to get into the N and 4 Low notches.

I looked underneath the truck at the spring cylinder and the two rubber boots are present at both the top and bottom but on close inspection the bottom boot has a decent sized gash in it that has probably caused some corrosion that is seizing up the parts inside.

Anyone else had this problem?

I think all I need to do is get some Pblast or lube into that cylinder and work it a little but I am not sure the best way to go about it. I guess I could always remove whats left of the boots but I wanted to check in here with you guys first in case there is a simple fix for this.

I have only had the truck for about two months and it came to me with this problem.

Thanks

Yeah, it's just frozen. PB should get it unstuck. Either here on the org, or on one of the other forums, there are pics from a fella who put zerk fittings on his mechanism, so he could lube his occasionally. May be best to remove it and clean it up real good; replacement one, even used, isn't cheap.

Thanks. Thats what I suspected. As long as I have a good feeling that getting it lubed and unstuck will solve the problem I will go back at it with a mind to probably removing it to get it on the bench and clean it up good.

Anybody got any advice or cautions on doing this removal? Hints? Tips?

Thanks
