242 Transfer Case Leaking Where 2 Halves Join
My 242 transfer case is leaking where the 2 halves bolt together on the bottom. I really don't want to take the tfr case down, split the halves and put new sealant on it. Crap - 5 hours worth of gut busting work for $1.50 worth of sealant. Does anyone know of a reliable work-around for this problem?
It's not coming from above and running down right? If it is leaking from around the inside of the bolt you can remove the bolt and squirt some RTV in and put the bolt back in. Not really any other way to fix it besides grinding and welding if it is leaking from the break in the case half.
You don't need to drop the case to fix this. Remove the rear drive shaft. Then a dozen bolts and a set of snap ring and retainer ring pliers and everything pulls apart.
I did it a couple months ago...I believe it was 1 snap ring and one retaining ring...they are on the output shaft.
