How do I remove my transfer case?

Hey guys,

Been hearing some scraping, squealing and now clunking coming from my transfer case. Fluid is normal. Pretty sure, the chain is coming off or came off. Anybody got a write up or tutorial on how to safely drop my transfer case and service it? I have an auto tranny, in case that matters.

Search for walk throughs on doing an SYE. There are lots of them Since you have to open up the TC to do that, the steps it shows will get you where you need to be.

You wouldn't have to remove it, but it's not that hard to do. Remove skid plate, remove bits connected to the t-case (linkage, electrical, breather, and drive shafts), remove nuts holding it to the transmission then two decently strong people can lift it down (it's cast aluminum, not very heavy). Takes maybe an hour or two.
