Exclamation I Need Help With My 4 Wheel Drive Lever!

My friend owns a 2000 Jeep Wrangler. Recently he got it back from the mechanic after some engine work, everything but the 4 wheel drive works. The mechanic says the lever is disconnected, the lever moves around in all directions essentially, but 4 wheel drive won't engage. Is there anyway we can reconnect it ourselves? If so, how? I've tried looking in multiple places for help but to no avail.

Please and thank you,
Kibagal

The linkage must have broke free from the grommet. This is the best time to ditch the stock linkage and upgrade to the Novak Cable Shifter. You will have to get under the Jeep and see if you can re-connect it.

Or the better fix:

Novak's 231 & 242 Cable Shifter Kit

x2 on the Novak shifter.

If you get underneath the Jeep and have someone move the 4WD lever, you'll see it moving and it should be fairly obvious what is disconnected, unless there are parts missing.
