    How are the tires? Do they all match exactly (size & tread depth)?

    Remove the bolt with 10mm socket, then with a small pair of pliers, carefully induce a small amount of rotation, like 5 or 10 degrees, and also very carefully a small flat screwdriver under the tab. It is all plastic, please be gentle, and keep it coming out as straight as possible.

    Explain please, when you say "left locked", do you mean T case in neutral, wheels in air, and you turn left wheel by hand, then observing a corresponding rotation in the front drive-shaft only? And if so, what if you have someone hold the left front wheel, and you turn the right? Do you then have rotation of the front drive-shaft? And what do you have when you turn either front wheel by hand, does the other wheel rotate in the opposite direction?

    Have you tried disconnecting the battery? And are you still getting flashing 4x4 lights on dashboard?
    To me, that case is MECHANICALLY very simple, but as far as the GEM, I don't know much about that part.
