Transfer Case Control Lever Removal Procedure??
I am suffering from what seems to be a pretty common problem on these trucks, that is, the seizing up of the transfer case control lever.
I can get into 4H smooth as silk but I am unable to depress the control lever to get into the N and 4L positions. Seems to me the control lever mechanism is just seized up and probably corroded.
Can anyone point me to a removal procedure write up on this or provide some tips and guidance? Have tried Pblasting it from underneath and using a rubber mallet on shifter to try to free it up from above but no use. I can see the thing right there above the rear of the transmission but I am unsure of how to proceed with removal so I can overhaul this device or even replace it if necessary.
Thanks for reading.
