No. The popping is coming from pressure being put on your transfer case. The axle leading to your front differential can be removed. That may or may not fix your issue.

The transfer case on my 1998 ford explorer will not come out of 4 low. The switch is not allowing it to change to 4 high or automatic. I was wondering if there is any way to find a scematic diagram of the...

it s a long shot, but put the explorer on jack stands start engine, put in neutral GENTLy tap on shift gear on transfer case while someone is pushing handle into high. tap gas to change RPM s while working it. put into drive and do the same but put transfer case into neutral, if goes into neutral stop and put transmission into neutral than put transfer case into high. keep in mind if it works don t take it out, or you will be doing all this again. have had shift cables break have someone shift while you try to change lever position. Might be worth having it checked , transfer case is not a transmission. senser, computer, fuses, solenoid relays are just some easy fixes for this problem..

If you push the button and it keeps flashing it is in fact not engaged. Usually its just the switch. I replaced mine in my 2000 blazer for 60bucks. If that doesnt fix it your looking at the transfer case module which could run upwards of 1200bucks. Try the switch even a used one or 2 just in case. Steve

Hi BlvdJoe. I am having EXACT same issue on my 96. I would pull on shifter and noise would quiet down. Changed fluid, no help. This weekend had a new transfer case installed and guess what... noise is STILL there! Mechanics swore it was transfer case as noise would double when pulled into 4-low. I am tearing my hair out. If you found answer let me know at

I have a 2000 mercury mountaineer. Power door locks and power seats not working. No manual. What could be the problem? a fuse?

Fuses would be the first suspect. Look for a small bread-loaf size box that contains all the fuses and relays. If a new fuse pops as soon as a seat or lock is operated, then look for a stuck motor for the seat or a shorted solenoid for a lock that was just operated. If it pops as soon as replaced, then suspect a wiring short.

1997 moutaineer Non functioning power windows, sunroof, door locks and power seats. What's the cause?

Check the fuse under the hood top right corner fuse box Third fuse down on the left side It is a 30 but in older Mercury Mountaineers the wires come slightly corroded and tend to not transfer enough power. So in conclusion either A: the fuse is blown or B: Boost it up to a 50 fuse which is what I had to do
