Customer Question
My name is *****...

My name is ***** *****. 2014 ran 3500. I was in 4wd low and the shifter came out of the transfer case.

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

The actual shifter came out and I can't get it back into transfer case. Stuck in 4 low. Should I be able to insert it back into transfer case?
