I just had my transmission rebuilt and I am hearing a clicking noise from under the shifter when I slow down. Sounds like it is winding down when I am braking. People have told me it may be a shift interlock solenoid or cable? Is this possible and is it possible they didn't connect it when re-installing the transmission? Thanks

No, it is not that. From your description, it may be something inside the trans making the noise or the transfer case. Did it have the noise prior to the re build?

Did you return to the shop for a follow up?

Yes,
The 4 wheel drive was not connected so they connected it and said to drive it for a while?

They installed a rebuilt transmission and I gues they forgot to reconnect it. They said the cap popped off? So they had to reconnect it. I was making the clicking noise immediately after the rebuild but the left 4wd shifter wasn't engaging. Now it is and it sounds like a clicking that is intermittent but louder and slower when braking. Thanks

Cannot begin to guess without hearing it.

You need to go back to the shop and get a straight answer as to the noise. Something is not right and needs to be corrected as you have spent good money for this repair.

REPUTABLE SHOP?

STAND BEHIND THEIR WORK?

NEUTRAL IN 2WD.I RECKON THAT WOULDN'T MATTER, THE TRANNY OUTPUT SHAFT WOULD NOT TURN IN NEUTRAL ANYWAY

HOW 'BOUT THE TRANNY JUICE, IS IT AT THE CORRECT LEVEL?

SOUNDS LIKE IT'S AN INTERNAL TRANNY KINDA THING

I WOULD REFRAIN FROM DRIVING IT. MORE DAMAGE MIGHT RESULT. NO TO MENTION THE POSSIBILITY OF BEING "AFOOT"

Correction, it happens in neutral as well. I had the transmission shipped and installed locally so no warranty. I hear it most when I brake. Even in neutral.

EVEN W/ NO WARRANTY (PERIOD OF TIME)

SURELY YOU DID NOT BUY IT "AS IS"

I WOULD THINK THEY WOULD STAND BEHIND IT AS WORKING CORRECTLY WHEN INSTALLED

HAVE YOU CONTACTED THEM?
