  • Transfer case shift noise

    When shifting between hi and low there is a slight 'grating' gear engagement noise in the t-case (auto trans in neutral, foot on brake)
    I've experienced not shifting out of low a couple of times, usually after long ascents. it will eventually release after shifting gearbox and transfer knob a couple of times.

    I've had the solenoid box apart and all looks good in there, the noise is definitely in the transfer case.

    Any advice?

    I don't usually have my foot on the brake when shifting out of low- I park on level ground and let it do its thing. Some noise is normal and it can sound pretty grating sometimes, but I'd imagine you've got some sort of linkage in there trying to disengage and if the gears aren't quite lined up then it's not going to come out "clean"-this is why I don't put my foot on the brake, my reasoning being that if anything inside needs room to move, it can. (not sure if my logic is correct or not, but I don't seem to have any dramas). I'd read the owners manual and see how they tell you to shit between the two if you're having problems.

      The noise and getting stuck in low is something new, we've owned this one about 2 years. Foot on or off the brake or the angle of the ground makes no difference.
      This is my 6th Toyota over 35 years but the first with an electronic shifter, although the shift itself seems to be working fine. The 95 was an auto, definitely needed to be in neutral but would shift in and out of low on the roll.
