Exclamation is pulling the drive shaft Required ??

OK... YES, this is my First 4x4 so... here we go. I'm thinking the chain popped in the transfer case. I'm wondering what is the BEST way to check it out. is dropping the drive shaft required to pull the transfer case out... to open it up and look at the chain ??

thanks,
jeff

it is very hard for the chain to pop off, have you checked the motor yet?

----------

in your other post you said that it wont go into gear. the chain will not effect the rear shaft.

yea... sorta. we've got the motor off and turned it manually to 2 and 4-wheel drive and it's not gettin Anything outta the tires. i figure if we Did get movement outta the wheels... it's gotta be the transfer motor... since we're Not.. the chain would be the next place to look. i guess.... like i said.. this is my First 4 wheel drive... so, its process of Elimination. if we can't get it going by Monday... it's goin in the shop
