pulling nv1500 tranny, in a bind

Do I drop the tranny with the whole shifter minus shift knob?

What's the best approach in removing the 4WD linkage off the transfer case? I removed the bolt on the transfer case that is slotted in a rectangle for the linkage and a bolt that supports the spring but I can't get to the highest bolt.

The shifter should be removed to drop the transmission, it should pop out pretty easily. On the AX-15 at least, it's a spring loaded collar. Take a couple slotted screwdrivers, push down, and turn. Shifter pulls right out.

As for the t-case linkage, I unbolt everything from the tub and leave everything in place on the transfer case.

Take your center console out. Remove the black plastic floor cover. Then pull the four bolts holding the whole shift lever Alot of disassembly but the easiest way to do it.

If you disconnect the transfer case linkage (which is a pain) they just pop off with some force. It will be ready to come out after you unplug all the plugs then unbolt it. It's not a fun job, hope you have an indoor garage with heat, a lift , tranny jack and a friend.

If you split the transfer case from the transmission you won't need a trans jack.
