Re: Need advice - broken tranny

So, now that I am back from vacation today is dedicated to replacing the parking shift shaft lever and getting the WJ back on the road - but I have a problem. The broken shift shaft will not come out - there is not enough clearance for it to be removed!
It looks like there is a round clutch housing (?) in the way. Is that part moveable somehow to allow the clearance I need?
Help!! Thanks in advance for any advice.
Here is a picture of the issue...

Re: Need advice - broken tranny

This is not good news, because you can eventually turn the planetary gear housing, but it will be the same all around. When you really cant get the old shift lever out, im afraid that the tranny has to come down and be opened to get the planetary train out to create the space.

Re: Need advice - broken tranny

Thanks Frango - I was afraid of that! I have been thinking about recreating a peg and tapping threads but I think instead that I will just have it pulled and the new part installed, more expensive but I dont really have lots of spare time and I need my truck rolling again with confidence. I have already been calling shops this morning.

Re: Need advice - broken tranny

Its a pitty that you wont have the time to do it yourself, because once the transmission is down its not difficult to remove the tranny internals. But it will be a time consuming job. Probably also not cheap to have a shop to do it.
Attached the gear train where youre looking at in the tranny. You can see that rotating it will not do a thing for creating extra space. This sucks.

Re: Need advice - broken tranny

Thanks however I just have way too many other things going on. I accept this as the consequence of my DIY endeavors and have no regrets - except that it is indeed a bummer....and wont happen again...I hope!!!
Now I have another problem. The car is in my garage nose in and the tranny is in Park. I have arranged a tow truck to come on Monday to pick it up.
Will they be able to tow it out in Park? Or is there a way for me to get it into neutral?

Yank the Transfercase handle to N.

Even if the jeep was running in Drive you pull the TC to N and she will just free spin!

Make sure your e-brake works because once in N nothing is keeping it from rolling away
