      Probably not.

      As stated, check the transmission fluid level.

      So what you're saying is that the vehicle is able to move in 4LO but not 4HI or 2WD?

      If that is true, then its a transfer case problem. The transfer case isnt being properly engaged in 2WD or 4HI, perhaps broken (or bent) shift fork and so on.

      There's really nothing to dissasembling a transfer case.

      Though the thread below is for the BW-4405, dissasembly should be pretty much the same so you might want to read it over just to familiarize yourself with the procedure and get an idea of what sort of tools is required:
