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

My name is ***** *****. The lever came out of my transfer case while in 4 low. Doesn't look like it broke but can't get it back in

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

Just curious if I should be able to get the lever back in
