Ford BW1356 Stuck in Low RangeMay 28, 2014 - Author: bartbarton - No Comments
I have a 1989 Ford Bronco with the 5.0LT engine 4WD.
Question: I just got this Bronco & tested my 4×4 & it stuck in low range. I had a mechanic take off the electric motor off the transfer case & the actuator shaft that spins to switch from 2wd to 4h & 4l was just spinning in the housing. It didn’t stop on the marked sections. What is wrong with the transfer case? Is that actuator shaft broken or are the gears or chain broken inside? Is this a usual broken part on this model of transfer case
Answer: From your description of the problem it sounds like a range fork/ range hub problem. This is a common problem
