The original shifter bush (shifter sheet) is made of nylon and after 20 years of sitting in oil they crumble away and disappear.
Replacement is cheap and easy.

SOURCE: hi i have a 94

Hi, am pretty sure it would be almost impossible to get the workshop breakdown page of the transfer case you are requesting for because such parts are not normally displayed in the manual except you get a auto mechanic specialized in Suzuki to help out.
You can also contact Haynes on 1-800-242-4637 to see if they can help out with the manual..

Need breakdow drawing of a 1986 suzuki samurai 4x4 transfer case it lock up in 4 low and u can t get it back in 2wd

Go to and order a new shifter sheet. Your shifter bushing (called a shift sheet) is bad which allows the shifter to drop and miss the shift rails. It is a 15 minute fix, and a $3.50 part.

95 Buick Riviera will shift into reverse but not nutral or drive the shifter feels stuck.

Worn bushings or linkage may be the issue due to age. There are many wear points. Can you do it without car running? If so it may be a transmission issue.

1991 S10 blazer 4x4 4.3 popping coming from the front

the popping sound is the stabilizer links or the lower control arm bushings you can replace all bushings and both link kits for around 50.00 and the light is prob from the sensor on the transfer case or the front end i would remove and clean with dawn dishwashing liquid and put them back.

My truck is stuck in 4LO and it won't come out of 4LO.

Likely either a shifter position sensor, transmission position sensor, or a differential position sensor. Had same issue w/ my Montero and it ended up being one of the 5 sensors on the transfer case. It was pretty tough to get to, so replaced all 5. That fixed it.

Jeep stuck in 4 wd and transfer case shifter moves about freely

OK, simple problem, and a quick fix...  (And I consider changing my own oil to be the extent of my automotive education.)  I had this happen today.  A little online research from the jeep community showed me the external cable that connects your 4WD knob with the arm on the transfer case is held on that arm with a plastic clip that is fond of disappearing.  
When the jeep cooled down, I crawled under, found the cable end hanging freely, and simply set it back on the arm.  With no clip it will pop off again, but it allowed me to shift back to 2WD and roll home.  I understand a zip tie will keep it in place until you get a 3/16 nut of some sort.  (Can't be more specific about the nut yet, I'm waiting for more info.)  
It was a relief to find out that I didn't need to have anything done with the transfer case, etc...  If you show the dealer the problem, I'm told they often want to replace the whole cable, as the clip comes as part of the whole.  Waste of time and $$$, and I canceled the appointment with the dealership when I learned the simplicity of the problem.

Suzuki sj 410 transfer box jammed

The thing to do to get it unjammed now is to remove the transfer shifter biushing and then replace it.  Remove the cover, then the boot, then depress and rotate the retaining ring (can be done with needle nose pliers inserted nose-down).  Then pull out the black rubber ring, wipe it off, then reinstall everything.  Get the transfer case into some gear and get back home.  When you get back home buy a new transfer case bushing from somebody like Suzuki John on Ebay.  The new bushing will fix the problem.

Transfer case

you will have to take the shifter out of the transfer case,remove the shifter bushing, then look down into the transfer will need a flash light,you will see the ends of two rods that have slots in them.take a long screwdriver and move the rods so the notches in them are even with oneanother.the rods will slide back and forth.once the notches are lined up you can shift your tranny.the bushing needs replacing in the shifter on the transfer case.look on EBAY and you will find them.
