QUICK! Transfer case removal

Driveshafts removed, skid plate removed, transmission & t-case supported with jack stands.

How does the t-case come down? I see 5? bolts that connect the t-case to the transmission and the shifter is bolted to the transmission. Is that all? Remove the bolts and slide it out and down?

Thanks.

Yep. Don't forget to disconnect the linkage to the shifter.

I'd suggest having the Jeep high enough that you can just sorta lower the T/C down onto your chest and roll out on the creeper. It's not all that heavy but it's really awkward to try and lift or lower to the side, if that makes sense. Same thing getting it back in, I sit on the creeper, sit the T/C on my legs, grab it and lay back, rest it on my chest and then roll under. Pretty easy at that point to just press it up and stab it in place.

Indeed, I got it out. Thanks!

Drained the fluid before I did anything else!

Max, I only had five bolts, but there was a hole for the 6th. It is apparently missing! Anybody other than dealer for it? It looks like some sort of stud with a nut on it. Also, are they all the same size? I noticed the nut was a little deeper on some, but does it matter if I put them back in the locations they came from? Thanks.

I noticed the vacuum hose while I was disconnecting the linkage and then pulled the speedo cable out. I had to cut the clamp off the vacuum hose. I suppose small hose clamp will replace it.

It was kind of light, but I had a helper to help me lower the case. It's sitting in my garage and the front yoke nut is already off.

Thanks a ton!

You have the BA10/5 tranny and NP231/AMC t-case. There are only five nuts holding it to the tranny. You only need to remove the mode selector linkage nut in addition to the vacuum switch hoses and vent hose.
The NP231/J has six nuts holding it to the AX15.

Also be certain the gasket between the tranny and t-case doesn't get damaged. There is no orientation on it.

His profile has the AX5 behind a 2.5L. with Np231 J, which has a 6 bolt setup. The studs screw into the TC about halfway, then the 9/16"nut tightens it all together. Are we all talking about the same drivetrain?

You mean the AX5? I have a 1995.
