Default Cheap Fix for Transfer Case Cable Bushing/Clip


Register to remove these ads. It's free!
When the plastic Bushing/Clip that holds the shifter cable onto the transfer case popped of, I checked Moparts America and did not like the ~$50 price tag for a complete assembly. Determined to not pay out that much money, I explored a cheaper fix. The shaft is hardened and would be a pain to anneal, drill, and tap for a retaining screw. So I headed for ACE hardware. Checking out the boxes of small hardware items, I saw a Stainless Steel 1/4" Axle Snap Nut. Bought it for $0.38 and headed home.


Held it in place and snapped it onto the lever, good to go.



May the Bean Counter who decided to not sell the replacement Bushing/Clip go pound sand.

Don't you love it when your on a MacGyver trip to the hardware store and the clerk asks you "What are you looking for." And you reply "I don't know yet."

I was wandering the hardware aisle at Home Depot last night holding my broken window regulator bracket trying to find a cheap fix. Store guy walks up and asks me "What are you looking for?". I replied "Inspiration".
