This transmission is a really bad design the clutch pack is the problem. You can try to tighten it and get some life, but there are no fixes for this unit.

SOURCE: big noise when in 4x4 on corners

I'm betting you will be running into a problem I am dealing with shortly. I would advise you to check your front axles possibly the transfer case as well, luckily you can drive straight in the 4x4 mode, mine grinds as soon as i move the lever, it might not be the wheel bearings, however it could be the CV joints, and if that is the case you may want to look into swapping your axles out. I'm not a professional Jeep guy but mine has had almost every problem it can have, just some advice, hope it helps.

SOURCE: little tikes princess battery power wheels

I would replace the gearbox, but it is a specific little tikes gearbox. If it is making a grinding noise, then the gears have broke.
You can find them at this website I would just let them know what model it is and you should be good to go.

SOURCE: noise in trans or in primary chain

It sounds like the primary drive chain is loose. The way I adjust mine is to take off the upper left inspection cover, start the bike and slowly tighten the adjuster until it starts to wine, then back off until it stops. Rev it slowly and listen for a wine. No wine good to go.

Service manual

Any time I hear that complaint I cringe. Not because of the noise but what it might be telling me. I usually hear that noise as the hot roller bushings &/or the main gear that drives the fuser is cracking or already cracked and is ready to fail. This causes the roller to bind up hence, the grinding noise. Sometimes a drum can seize and that will also make that sound but if you're able to print OK that is probably not the issue.

im assuming you dont here any grinding, start by tightening the cable ( loosen the cable mounting bolt slide the cable towards the engine, make sure you leave some play in the cable so its doesnt engage constantly and re-tighten ) this is most likely your issue however if you re-test and get grinding you either need new drive gears and wheels, new transmission or possibly both, you said it does something just not powerfully this pretty much rules out your belt, highly doubtful its that worn out and if it came off of a pulley it would do literally nothing, however if you tighten it and the drive is almost normal but still weak you do have a worn drive belt

Gear shift button hard to push

Well the fuse could be the problem but I would doubt that.. Is the button itself dirty in any way? Sometimes the manufactuer just make faulty parts. Has it always done that? Is it just sticking? Can you hear plastic grinding when you force it? I believe it's a problem with the switch itself. Not the operational system of the vehicle...
