Last week I turned the knob while driving about 30 mph from a4wd to 4h then to 4l and now the dash indicator shows whichever position the knob is in but the vehicle wont disengage from 4h. I heard a loud thud when this was intiitially done. Did I tear up the motor/gear that engages/disengages the 4 wheel drive?

Most likely, they were kind of a problem to begin with. In the future, you should NEVER try for 4lo when moving.

Looks like you just remove the 4 bolts holding it and pull it off. Reverse for install

Hi my husband took the it off and the motor it works ok. Put it back and it still stuck like it is still in 4x4 high. I am having a hard time turning the wheel when I turn into parking space. Is there anything else he can do.
Thanks

Took in to ford dealer they replace the clip and plastic cam and after 600.00 later and almost a week. We got it back. Still drives like it is in stuck still in 4 high. Do you think they didn't fix it.
It still turns like it is in 4 high. Very stiff and makes a grinding noise when I turn and turn in parking spaces too
