Transfer case shifter bushing

Hi Guys,

The other day, when I changed from 4WD to 2WD on my liberty, I felt it a bit loose, and after this change, the shifter kept loose, like if it was "disconnected" and I wasn't able to change to 4WD anymore. I was reading a couple of posts on this forum regarding the same problem mostly in Wrangers and I saw that it's usually a bushing problem.

After that I had a look under that car, and yes, my bushing was disappeared... so I temporarily fixed it with a metal clip just to be able to deal with the snow that we have in Bonston and now I want to buy a new bushing to permanent fix the problem.

Reading the forum I saw different model of the bushing and I'm not 100% sure of which one is the right one for my 2006 3.7 4WD liberty. I believe that is the MOPAR #68001899AA but as I told, I'm not 100% sure.

Anyone can confirm to me that this is the right one and where I can buy it?

Looks like the right one to me. Funny but I think I replaced mine with the same thing and I have a 242 Tcase.

Thank you very much.

I just ordered it online after visiting some shops and none of them had stock.

I'll try to post some pictures.

Hi Guys,

I got the piece, but it's too big... or I'm dump and I can't put it in place... but I believe that it's too big, i can fit in in the "engine" part but it's as big as the cable end, so I can't fit the cable end on it... I attach a picture of the piece, can anyone help?

Thanks.

I had to grease mine a bit with bearing grease and press it in with pliers. It has to be pushed into the cable end first and then snapped onto the lever. The bushing should be tight but was pliable enough to squeeze in with much force. Once in it fit perfectly and snapped over the shift lever end at the Tcase. If it is cold where you are working, it may be very difficult. I originally ordered a green one but I guess that goes on the other end of the cable at the actual shift lever in the console.

It is freezing! I live in Boston... Ok, I'll give it another try tomorrow if it's not snowing... Thanks for the tip with the grease!

Try to warm it up a bit too. It's pretty flexible when it's not so cold.

Boston, that explains the cold. You are having a "fun" winter. We're getting a bit of your weather today. About 8 inches of snow but at least it's not below zero like it had been the past few morning. We've been lucky to get out of the teens the past week or so.

This is not the right part... I tried to warm it up and nothing... even I tried to cut a bit the outer part of the plastic in order to reduce the size of it and fit it inside and nothing... This piece is too big, I attach a picture of the right size (after removing the outer plastic part of the piece), but even like that, it doesn't work, it goes out after a couple of times of using it...


Any idea?

Maybe an image of the cable end would be more useful. That is the one I used on mine. I had to use channel locks to press it in but fit nice and snug. Once again, mine is the 242 but the part description actually says 231 like you have. I pressed it into the cable end and then snapped it onto the shift lever.

Yes, you are right, I'll take a picture of the end of the cable.

Thanks!

Keep us posted! This just happened on my 2005 Liberty as well. Two zip-ties have kept me in place but I'd like to get the correct bushing sooner than later. I'm in NJ, so I hear you on the snow!
