Angry Transfer case shift linkage problems!!!!

So I went and did a little wheelin to day and when I was coming off the mountain I put it into 4 low to hold me back(really steep with loose gravel). So when I get to the bottom I try an shift back into 2wd and cant. I mean I was pushing as hard as i could and nothing. So I get under the Jeep and shift it on the TC WTF is going on? Took some pics is this what it is really what it is suppose to look like? I'm pointing at what I think may be the problem. What do you guys think.

Mine is adjusted back on the rod further. It may have moved if it was loose. Just a matter of adjusting

this, and if you are on the trail and need to shift in/out of 4x just back that bolt off and you can re-position or even manually control it as long as there isnt another problem.

X3

Loosen the bolt, put the shifter in 4Lo, manually put the tcase in 4Lo (pushing on the tab), then tighten the bolt. 3 minute adjustment.

That being said, I actually need to do this myself, and the bolt has Harry Pottered off the linkage. Anyone know what size it is?

how difficult should it be to move manually if there isn't another problem
