1997 Ford Explorer Transfer Case Shift Motor
Its true. Change the shift motor and all those problems of going in and out of low range, go away. this is a fairly easy job, just make sure that you change 1 wire at a time when doing the plug, and you wont have any troubles. I did remove the balancer weight on the trans to give me more room to work, plus I hung the motor on one of the studs when I was changing the wires. this shifting motor works great and recommend it. Thank you 1A Auto
