Have a 99 WJ, I6 160,000+miles with NP242 transfer case and I have a small leak. I believe I've traced the leak to the "Sector O-ring and Seal" on the inside of "Shift Lever". I've read that this can be overlooked when determining the location of the leak.
Question, can I get to the ring and seal via removing the "shift lever washer and nut"? Or do I have to remove the Front Case because they are inside?
Thought I'd ask before I start tearing into it.
Oh yeah!!! Forgot to ask! In addition, I noticed that the Shifter Cable from that connects to the "Shift Lever" on the T-case was just hanging there!?!
Learned I'm missing the plastic piece that holds the cable to the lever arm.
Do you know if the plastic cap just snaps on the "Shift Lever" or what because I'm going to have to go to the junk yard and get one and was wondering how to pull, pry or what when I find one?
