    Hi guys. I'm new to the forum and wish I had joined sooner. There's a lot of good info in here. Let's jump in with a question! Haha. I have a 1998 tacoma 4x4 with a 2.7l and w59 transmission. I was changing the clutch and decided to change out the leaking transfer case output shaft seal on my front output shaft. I was trying to free up the the staked nut with a hammer and screw driver and I hit this booger and broke it. Could you guys enlighten me on what it is and about how much it would cost?2016-02-23 16.05.54.jpg 2016-02-23 16.06.55.jpg

    I suggest you contact Marlin Crawler. They have a bible on all of the transmissions and can assist. They are only open Mon - Thurs so get on it. Try and talk to CJ or Big Mike if possible.

    Good luck.

    It's a sensor of some sort that comes out of the driver side of the transmission. I'm at work now but I'll get a picture of the part itself this evening.

    probably the sensor that sees you're in reverse and turns on your back-up lights.

    This is only a guess.

    Definitely. I was pretty worried. Thought was something a lot more important.
