transfer case switch?

Has anyone replaced the switch on you transfercase the engauges the 4 wheel drive. I need to get mine out. I've got constant vac on the yellow line going to the plunger that engauges the front axle. I can see it from the boot that covers the stick shift is this my best route? It's in a pretty had spot to get to from under/on top of the skid plate with the linkage in the way. I've tought about going the posi lock route but I'd thought I would just pull the switch and see if alittle cleaner would free it up. Thanks

I swapped in a TJ electrical switch after my solid shaft conversion, and I did it with the skid plate in place. If I remember right it was a 7/8" or a 1" wrench. I remeber using a socket and a wrench, and it was tight, but it came out with out too much trouble.

Just did it today,my 4wd actuator was bad and I get a huge discount at work so for $5 for a new one I went ahead and got it.I just used a 1/2 ratchet and a 1 1/4" socket to get it loose,it wasnt that tight at all.Then I snugged the new one up and all is good now.Before mine would engage no problem but wouldnt disengage the front diff. Its not hard at all to get to it took literally 2 minutes to change it,it was harder lining up the vac hoses then taking the old one out and putting the new one in.Good luck
