Transfer case shifter linkage, loose at the 'pivot point'
I really should of snapped a picture, apologies in advance if I don't explain this quite right...
So the transfer case shifter connects to the linkage on the right side of the transmission, and there's a point between the shifter side linkage and the transfer case linkage where it pivots. On the trans side it's simply an 'A' shaped mount with a hole in it, on the frame side it looks like a tab.
(Hoping that paints a decent picture)
After a nasty DW, I noticed my shifter was basically limp, and I couldn't engage 4W at all. I got underneath and noticed that the linkage had come out of the trans side mount at this pivot point. I was able to wrestle it back in place, but now I have a good half inch of side to side play, and if I get a little aggressive on the shifter, it will pop out, locking me into whatever drive I was currently in. I don't really see how this thing can be tightened, unless I'm missing something painfully obvious. Any thoughts?
Your HDR looks bad, and you should feel bad
