I am replacing the transfer case motor on my 2004 GMC

Customer Question

Hi Pearl, I am replacing the transfer case motor on my 2004 GMC Sierra. The shaft gears and the transfer case motor housing are not lining up. I tried to simply plug in the transfer case motor and set it to what I thought the shaft was set to, it moved it, but not to the correct position.
JA: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the brake switch?
Customer: I think the transmission is 10 years old
JA: What is the model of your '04 GM?
Customer: Sierra Z71 4.8 L
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I included this in the message already, just trying to figure out how to align the shaft with the tranfer case motor for correct installation.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: I don't think so.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the GM Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

can you move the splined shaft out of the transfer case to align it to the motor ?

and after the motor moved that one time it will not move at all again ?
