    That is the transfer case actuator. Moves it from 4 hi to 4 low.

    Check this thread out!

    From the sounds of it I think your having trouble with the ADD Actuator.

    Check this thread.

    dude, I started that thread, I acutally put on the ADD motor on the front diff and it's still not working, now they're saying it's the 'shift motor' mounted on my transfer case.

    i wouldn't know then. do you have a 2-4 switch in the transfercase shifter or just the shifter. It may be one of those.

    thanks man, I filled in my truck specs.

    thanks for confirming that part, now the Toyota Stealership told me in order to get that 2-4 Shift Motor off the transfer case, I would have to open it up and undo some sort of clip, and that it doesn't simply unbolt and slide out. anybody know anything about this?

    those are some nice write-ups, but that last one was for the shift lever, looking for a 'how-to' on getting the shift motor out.

    HHHmmmmmmmmmmm.............I may have read that wrong. Regardless, that's where it will disconnect internally. I can't find anything that goes into better detail.

    I saw that before, but I must have skipped over it. Hell, if you have to go that far you should replace all the seals too.
