Transfer Case Chain ~ Borg Warner 4404

Everyone told me it was the CV joints. Replaced them, guess what? Still crunches. It's coming from the tranfer case. Anyone with experience replacing the chain in there? Do you have to remove the case? Looks to me like it can be serviced without taking it out. Please don't tell me to get a rebuilt. I want the cheap way out.

Thanks!! Bill

Sorry no experience with the t-case. Can you pull the cover and see how it looks before removing the t-case?

its fairly easy to replace, but i would pull the case if i were you.. there is only 6 bolts that hold in onto the trans. the only one that is hard to get to is the one on the passenger side closest to the exhaust.. the top 2 can be accessed by a service panel that can be removed by taking the center console out and pulling the carpet back (i just cut mine down the middle to make it easier and since it wouldn't be seen anyway since the center console is on top of it.). the panel held on with 4 bolts. be careful not to break off bolts when tryin to take the case apart, i broke all but 6 on my old one taking it apart to see why it failed

Bill. Transfer cases aren't fun. Be cautious if removing it yourself though, as it can catch you off guard when it comes loose. Expect it to be heavy. It's best to use a jack, or homemade device to hold up the case while you loosen the bolts, so you don't put strain on one, or more of the bolts causing them to break. I also advise using air tools! Chains can be replaced and you can even buy rebuild kits online (Ebay for example). Just search for the model number of your case. It's not a hard job, just time consuming, even with the right tools.

You can also check around for a used case, if your current one is too far gone. Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market is a good site

Re: Transfer Case Chain ~ Borg Warner 4404

Strange why people would seek an answer for a question they don't really care to get a response to. Must be nice to own a somewhat new vehicle every few months! "damn I have a problem, time to sell the thing". As much as I think newer vehicles are made to be thrown away after a few years (plastic oil pan/filter parts in the new Escapes for instance), I'll hold onto my babies. Mine was helping solve the trailer wiring issue I had a few weeks back. She said it couldn't be fixed so I removed it altogether anyway. It must be nice to have SMALL HANDS
